Thanks to Paula DiGioia, one of the Wave's graphic designers -- and author of "The Glorified Tomato" column -- James Dalid of the Rockaway Artists Alliance and our cartoonist Tom Kerr, we got a lot of entries. Finally, we selected "Monument for Fish" by…

While this year's Rockaway beach opening lacked the histrionics of the 2018 version—featuring undertakers conducting a mock funeral—it served as an opportunity for local elected officials to celebrate the new season ahead at Beach 17th Street and the boardwalk. NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver called the recent reopening of local beaches from Beach 92nd through Beach 103rd Streets "a great step forward," while communicating that the…
