no not that Rockaway, the Rockaway, believe it or not before the stupid song came out the beach side neighborhood of Rockaway Beach, NYC was there. One of the highest concentrated population of Irish people in the country, once call Irish Town USA, there were 102 bars in a 3 x 4 block span. It is the most radical party town you can encounter. We're there is no such time where you cant buy beer and weed is only a phone call, chirp, or yell away. The bars don't close until the beagel stores open, somtimes later, where smoking is not allowed in bars except if its smoking a joint with the bar owner, where the bartenders actually know what there doing and give buy-backs. Where you never have to hear a rap song at a bar, just good music. The summers are alive with party after party. Where the eve of every holliday seems like a reson to get wasted, you start drinking at family parties before you get out of 8th grade, where a person on the handlebars of your hampton cruiser is carpooling, and a late night skinny dip after a long night of drinking is the normal thing to do. Where fitting 9 guys into a cab is allowed. Where you can go and hang out with your 16 year old cousins at the bar with out a promblem. A cooler on the beach and a few friends can turn into a raging party. Where on a stormy day you can find most lifeguards in Rockaway at Connollys at 3 in the afternoon. Where 14 year olds are having kegs and 40 year olds are having house parties and everybody in between is drinking somwhere. Where you can ride a bike to the bar and not be the only one to do so. Where surfing is a past time and kickball is still cool. This is a college town, without the college. Where your friends have been your friends for life and will be for life.
Its so Irish that it shuts down and we have our own St Pattys day.

Drinking at Tommy's in the middle of the street at noon on a sunday, ahhh good times.

No. Just, no. It's not the shit, despite what people say. It is shit. As the residents of Rockaway say, it's a "hellhole" on the south side of New York City.
Those Rockaway scum think their hellhole is the best place on Earth. Well, they're still livin' in the SEP bubble.

Rockaway:

no not that Rockaway, the Rockaway,where parents and grandparents alike willingly sell their children into slave labor if they refuse to drink alcohol before they can walk. It has the highest concentration of Irish people in the whole intergalactic galaxy. There are more white asses,freckles, and poorly sculpted bodies than there are single grains of sand on its beaches. By the time children reach the age of 12, they are already giving bouncers high fives and drinking moonshine at anyone of the town's 10,000 bars...AND THATS JUST PREGAMING! The bars don't close...ever. Stear clear non-partyers! Where smoking a joint with the bar owner is perfectly fine, if you give him a handjob of course!! Dogs poop on sidewalks, cab driver's have hearing aids, and nobody's complaining...they're all too drunk!!!!! Cars are obsolete for this "college town without a college", Hampton Cruisers rule the streets...and people are driving them...DRUNK! Late night skinny dipping is perfectly acceptable, in fact its mandatory. Dads neglect children, and its ok cuz everybodys having fun. Coolers on the beach is a religious ceremony, where a breezy kid is captured and sacrificed to the Gods. Its a raging party, where 40 year olds and 14 year olds r shotgunning beers in the rectory of St. Francis de Sales, while Sr. Pat taps the next keg. Need a haircut?No problemo, Frank the skank will be with you in a jiff to massacre your helmet. Yeah, its that kind of town. Where if you listen carefully late at night, you can still hear the soft crooning of a passed rockawayan chanting: "iLLLLLLLLLLLLLL..."
And out of respect, those continuing the legacy, all collectively raise their glasses , and softly respond :"..doggers..." I love this place.
that mick mutant is from rockaway

the biggest town in morris county, nj. people go to the mall for hours, or you go to white meadow lake and mount hope pond for a day. the rich kids up in greenpond have the most outrageous parties. knolls over hills. obviously. u hang out at peterson on long summer nights or you ride bikes around the fields. the best parties are thrown in basements and there’s underage teens raging. the best times are when you’re with your friends and in the scorching summer. you really really hate randolph and you’re bestfriemds with peole from denville if you live in rockaway. rockaway is the best town in the county.
A: Hey, aren’t you from Rockaway?
B: Yeah! Best town ever!!

A neighborhood in Queens where young people spend all their money on clothing, alcohol, and drugs. A neighborhood full of crackheads on 116th street and a nice bagel place and deli on 129th.
A neighborhood where people tip chairs for fun and get zooted 24/7
I went to this sick party at Rockaway yesterday

A really useless dance move created by some rapper. Involves crossing your arms and leaning back repeatedly.
That boy thinks he's fly, doing the rockaway.
