Welcome to the Bayswater Civic Association

We hold public meetings from September through June at the Bayswater Jewish Center located at 2355 Healy Avenue corner of Dickens Street, Far Rockaway NY 11691.


The city is plannig to “revitalize” the Village, or “Downtown Far Rockaway” as they call the project.  You can learn more about these plans on our What’s New page, here.  The BCA Board feels that the plans are mistaken.  You should make your views heard.

The next Open Meeting will be on Monday, June 26, 2017 at the Bayswater Jewish Center (corner of Dickens Street and Healy Avenue) – 8 pm.

Our primary speaker will be -  Portia Dyrenforth, Rockaway Parks administrator discussing Bayswater Park.  We also expect our new commanding officer, Captain Vincent Tavalaro or our executive officer, Captain Courtney Nilan of the 101st precinct to speak.

The association’s revised by-laws are available by clicking here.


Questions about the city’s plans to reconstruct downtown Far Rockaway - click here.  And the Community Board’s Ad Hoc Committee reccomendations here.  For more information, go to What’s New.

Note that the plans as presented on Tuesday, September 20 don’t do much to revitalize downtown Far Rockaway but do include over 3,000 new housing units in buildings as tall as 15 stories.  Make your voice heard!
