7. Rockaway…Avenue, Boulevard, Freeway, Parkway, Point Boulevard, Beach Boulevard (Brooklyn, Queens)

Technically, the given name “Rockaway” is never succeeded by an identical suffix, unlike all of the other streets on this list. Nevertheless, a ride through the southern neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens will yield a seemingly endless array of “Rockaways,” including Rockaway Parkway (Canarsie), Rockaway Freeway (Bayswater), Rockaway Point Boulevard (Breezy Point), Rockaway Beach Boulevard (Belle Harbor), and just plan old Rockaway Boulevard (Ozone Park) and Avenue (Brownsville). It remains unclear which “Rockaway” can truly claim to be the elder statesmen, but Rockaway Beach Boulevard was undisputedly the first major road to service the Rockaway Peninsula, dating to 1886.
