We are here in downtown Rockaway for this extremely small 14,000 square foot ACME. It was built in 1955 and appears to have the metal tower sign built directly into the roof of the building, which was a variation sometimes seen. It was likely chopped off a bit and covered over with sheetrock (and then had a hole cut in the center...?) when the facade was renovated at some point. In 1980, this store was combined with another small location in Dover for a large, new store (since closed) in the Rockaway Townsquare mall. We'll actually be seeing both of those stores in the next week, but up first we have to head back down to 46 for an independent store in Rockaway on The Independent Edition!
