Waterproofing Services in Belle Harbor
Belle Harbor has a robust real estate market due to its proximity to New York City and its excellent schools. However, not every home in this village offers adequate protection against water damage. Suppose you live in Belle Harbor or any other area that experiences heavy rainfalls and extreme temperatures throughout the year. In that case, it’s essential to have your roof inspected by professionals at least once every two years to get any issues fixed before they become worse.
Zavza Seal LLC offers free consultations on any roofing project, including commercial work, residential work as well as insulation services.
Belle Harbor History & Culture
The makings of Belle Harbor began in 1900, when a New York State judge ordered that the land west of Rockaway Park be put up for auction. The area that makes up Belle Harbor and the neighboring community of Neponsit was bought by Edward P. Hatch, who after a couple years, sold it to the West Rockaway Land Company in 1907. Residential lots in Belle Harbor were auctioned off in 1915. The president of the company, Frederick J. Lancaster, who had earlier developed the Edgemere neighborhood, officially gave the community its name.
Prior to Lancaster’s acquisition of the land, however, a group of men wishing to form a yacht club entered into a grant agreement with the West Rockaway Land Company in 1905. The group, which had named itself the Belle Harbor Yacht Club, bought property from the company for four-thousand dollars. The agreement included two-hundred square feet of land and thirty plots of upland. That same year, the group received corporation status by the State of New York, and by 1908 began participating in its first inter-club ocean races with some of the city’s other yacht clubs.
The earliest homes in Belle Harbor were built circa 1910. Over the next four decades, hundreds of single-and two-family houses were built from beach to bay, filling most of the land by the early 1950s. In the 1960s and 1970s, the neighborhood became a haven for working class and lower-middle-class families looking to escape the congestion of “mainland” Brooklyn and Queens. Many civil servants, including teachers, firefighters and police officers owned homes in the neighborhood. The housing bubbles in the late 1980s and early 2000s brought a different mix of residents but many many third and fourth generation residents remain.
