Salvaged from the ruins of Hurricane Sandy, this reclaimed wood runs rich with New York City history, having adorned the world famous Rockaway Beach boardwalk for decades. The devastating storm shredded the seaside landmark in 2012, leaving precious few remnants behind, so it’s with great pride that we’ve incorporated these unique artifacts into a once-in-a-lifetime keepsake.
To honor the rich history and resiliency of the largest urban beach in the United States, Original Grain is proud to unveil the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk bracelet.
It was New York City’s playground in the early 1900s. It’s been immortalized on film by Woody Allen and on wax by The Ramones. It suffered a massive, boardwalk-shredding blow from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. And through it all, Rockaway Beach has remained an enduring American icon.
Made with actual reclaimed wood from the Rockaway Beach boardwalk, this handcrafted, landmark piece comes with more than a century’s worth of New York City lore built-in. This is the boardwalk that immigrants laughed & loved on. The boardwalk that heard the first sounds of doo-wop, hip-hop, and everything in between. It’s wood that has seen a century’s worth of memories in the city that never sleeps. And now it’s yours.
With Sea Green glass beads representing the Atlantic Ocean, Yankee Pinstripe spacers, and your choice of brushed steel or onyx beads, there’s nothing in the world quite like it. Just like Rockaway Beach.
