Canarsie High School, as well as a firehouse and several homes and businesses are on Rockaway Parkway. The Rockaway Parkway station is the southern terminus of the BMT Canarsie Line (L train). The B42 bus runs primarily along Rockaway Parkway, and riders can transfer for free from the Rockaway Parkway subway station.
Rockaway Parkway originated as an 18th-century road to the Canarsie Ferry.
Its northern segment begins at East New York Avenue in Brownsville. It then intersects Linden Boulevard and ends past Ditmas Avenue. The southern segment begins north of Avenue D in Canarsie, then intersects Flatlands Avenue, crosses under the Belt Parkway, and ends at Canarsie Pier. Northbound and southbound traffic is separated by a median between Linden Boulevard and Rockaway Avenue; south of Seaview Avenue, Rockaway Parkway again becomes separated by a median to its southern terminus at Canarsie Pier.
