    Five Towns on Rockaway Blvd. , Tpk, Lawrence,NY , right underneath the path for 31R short finals, famous freight dog flop house, the hotel van will take you to the Bayhouse a local establishment that is located less than a mile from the threshold of 31R on sunny, Jamaica Bay, beers, and burgers, while you spot. : )
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Spotting from the Bayhouse is fun, but it will yield nose on photos and underbelly shots. If you want side on photos, it's a short cab ride from your hotel to neighboring spotting locations. Here's a link to the JFK spotting map on this site. A great resource for your NY area spotting. Enjoy-

    Bayhouse is fun during the summer when the 13R departures are a booming away, great to hang on the deck and spot.
