From The Real Deal:
Photographer Lynn Guarino recently toured the Far Rockaway's remaining bungalows to capture how they have become dilapidated and worn down over time due to shifting demographics (see slide show at right).
Guarino said that in the 1940s, "Far Rockaway was pegged as 'the new Hamptons,' and the bungalows were popular vacation destinations for New Yorkers," but when the city built low-income housing in the area, its tourism industry declined. A local preservation group called the Beachside Bungalow Preservation Association has made preserving the bungalows its mission.
"I wanted to show in the photos the impact the city has of making or breaking neighborhoods depending on the zoning laws and types of housing they build," Guarino said.
