A suburban town on the outskirts of New York City. Near the beach. Part of the borough of Queens. Hometown to Richard P. Feynman. A boring little village, which serves as a home for the less affluent Jews in the area. In an attempt to sound more classy, many of the local Jews decided to name the town "West Lawrence," in order to create the appearance that Far Rockaway were actually part of the wealthier, adjacent neighborhood, Lawrence.
