The article focuses on the attention which a peninsula, situated in southwest of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City is receiving. On the peninsula, a long-neglected area called Arvernc is finally receiving some attention. In November, buyers started moving into 36 new two-family houses, arranged as two-flats; this is the initial phase of the neighborhood's first development in 40 years. While most of Rockaway is built up, whole blocks of the forlorn Arverne neighborhood, which abuts a silent boardwalk and whitesand beach, are dotted with overgrowth and trash. The proposed plans for the modernization is mentioned in the article.
