About Marina 59

Marina 59 is a five-acre property nestled in Somerville Basin, Jamaica Bay, Queens. The marina is an hour from the city or Brooklyn on the A train to Far Rockaway. The elevated line bisects the peninsula, with the bay to the North and the ocean to the South. It is a strange but compelling intersection of fishermen & boaters, airplanes flying overhead, the projects, the beach and boardwalk, old houses and bungalows, sometimes tropical climate, goats, piping plovers and many other birds, the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Arverne-by-the-Sea condos, hipsters, surfers, and artists.
