History of Breezy Point: 1900 to Today
The Breezy Point Historical Society was formed in 2015 following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. As a result of flooding and fire, most residents lost all their photographs and other precious memorabilia of their early years in the Rockaways. They were determined to preserve for future generations what was left of our past. The group gathered at a local church, which had also been flooded with five feet of water during Sandy, to organize a non-profit to begin the process. Since then, the Society has collected and digitized thousands of photographs, some of which you will see in the lecture. This lecture will be lead by Paul Balukas, the curator, and Cathy Murfitt, the President of the Society. We hope you will enjoy seeing some of our collection!
