Filmed this past summer, Rockaway Taco documents a day-in-the-life of a surf taco stand in Queens, NY.
Located a block away from Rockaway Beach, the taco stand shares a corner space with an Italian ice stand, coffee shop, organic vegetable stand, and requisite surf shop. The mishmash of businesses work together as a whole to provide a market and refuge for local firefighters, NYPD, surfers, and the occasional crazie.
With its laid back vibe and surf-first mentality, it’s easy to forget that Rockaway Taco operates in one of the outer boroughs, and not southern California. The film is an inspiring look into making something work within your given environment, and connecting with the community.
