Arverne Reviews

26 reviews
All Categories
Arverne is a growing neighborhood, that is welcoming more and more visitors due to its very close proximity to the beach. Since Arverne is a part of the Rockaway Beach Peninsula, there is a great amount of diversity. Since the neighborhood is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Jamaica Bay, it is much more prone to heavier rain and drastic effects after hurricanes. After Hurricane Sandy, Arverne was like a ghost town but after a few years of recovery, Arverne is again booming and alive. Tourist always come back for the great scenery and great food. Visiting Arverne, NY and Rockaway Beach is the trip of a lifetime.

The community is filled with many public schools and community centers for the youth. There are several restaurants in the area that offer a wide variety of foods such as Chinese, Jamaican cuisine, Italian etc. There aren't many options for "healthy living" such as whole food markets. The commute is extensive and far away from the other boroughs.
I've been living in Arverne for three years. A lot of changes has to be done. After hurricane Sandy, there were many damages. I appreciate the things that were fixed such as the beach and trains. The buildings are the main problem. People sometimes never help themselves. Our floors are never cleaned and maintenance comes once a month. The sanitary in the lobby is appalling.
