Curley's Atlas Hotel and Baths
Curley's Atlas Hotel and Baths was a long-standing institution in the Rockaway Park neighborhood of Queens in New York City. The hotel was founded in 1876 by John J. Curley on the beachfront at present-day Beach 102nd Street, in the neighborhood now known as Rockaway Beach or "Irishtown". The hotel was moved to its longer-lasting site at Beach 116th Street (then known as Fifth Avenue) in 1900.
The hotel was destroyed by fire on March 31, 1968.
