1873 map
Did you know Long Beach was once split by 2 inlets ??  This 1873 map clearly (well the original I have is clear !!) shows it.  Luce's Inlet was in the east, probably somewhere in the vicinity of Blackheath Rd.  The East Rockaway Inlet ( once called Hog Inlet ) was actually in the vicinity of New York Ave.  You can see that it opened directly into Broad Channel. The West End, beyond NY Ave is shown connected to the mainlaind in the vicinity of the current Atlantic Beach Bridge.  It is possible a storm closed the East Rockaway inlet by NY Ave. and breached a new one in it's current location. I'm still trying to confirm this positively. FYI, Hog Island is the current Island Park.

West End near NY Ave.
A beach scene in the West End, probably late 1930's early 40's.  I'm fairly sure this is looking off the end of the boardwalk at New York Ave.

I was asked to caption this " The greatest ball player to ever come out of LBHS".  I don't know who he is, but Jay Fink does.. you can email him with your guess at
Looking north toward the LB Bridge from Pine St. in the 50's.  I believe the construction you see is on the outbound span.  Waldman's Garageis also shown at the right.
