While many people opt to live near their workplace to cut down on commuting, Courtney and Aristides choose to live where their hearts belong. And that magical place is on the Rockaway Peninsula in the New York City borough of Queens. Avid surfers, the couple wanted a place close to the ocean with easy access to the waves. “We both may work a little far from where we live, but the natural beauty and solitude on the peninsula coupled with great surf makes it too hard for us to give up,” Courtney says. “It’s a really nice sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.” An independent interior designer, Courtney works in both residential...
