are just a few of the big events
that have impacted Rockaway,

June 6, 1993 is another one of
those days that has stayed with
many. It has been 25 years
since the Golden Venture ran
aground off of Fort Tilden in
the early morning hours of that
day, but some, especially those
first on the scene, remember as
if it just happened.
“I remember the blood-cur-

We might be a little biased but we think some of the best photographers in the world live
in Rockaway. We try to print some every week, but we got backed up a bit the past couple of
weeks, so we’ve got extra this time around. Send your photos (limit to 2 per week) to mail@
rockawaytimes.com and we’ll do our best to print them (space permitting). We do receive
more than we can print.

more rain, with a little sun
and a touch of chill for Sun-
day, Rockaway Little League
(RLL) continued to swing into
another week of softball and
baseball play at Ft. Tilden. The
highlight of the week was RLL’s
mid-season celebration of All-
Star Games. Players were se-
lected from each of our com-
petitive divisional teams to
face-off each other in our very
well-attended, fun-filled spec-
tacular. The true heroes of the
day were RLL’s grounds crew,
headed by John Duggan and
Matt Piccione, who after early Minor Boys’ saw the Empire ting streak to three games. Af-
