Once a Long Island shipping center, East Rockaway is an attractive village that covers only one square mile. It was once the home of MLB player Reid Gorecki, as well as Hollywood actors Don Murray and Brian Keith.
Originally begun as a shipping and trading center for Long Island's south shore, East Rockaway developed into a center for local milling, thanks to the construction of a grist mill in 1688. Since then, perhaps the oddest story in East Rockaway's history concerns the bell from the local bell tower which was stolen by a high school student during the 1960s. For some reason, the bell still hasn't been replaced. That's not to say that things don't happen here. The historic East Rockaway docks, for example, were renovated in 2005, and historic 19th century structures such as the Village Hall and the Grist Mill Museum are not only renovated; they're also open to the public. With a population of 9,818, the town has a thriving business community, tons of civic pride and plenty of beautiful parks and recreational centers for the locals to rejoice in. It's one of those towns that celebrates Arbor Day (complete with plenty of local press) and holds annual Easter egg hunts where everyone actually shows up. As for that missing bell, maybe East Rockaway feels that it's more important to maintain its funky, semi-modern/late-Victorian village ambiance than to worry about replacing an oversized bronze bell that probably kept everyone awake all night anyway.

Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some East Rockaway apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
