ROCKAWAY : 20 MILES FROM BROADWAY!

Rockaway Ol`times

This old advertisement was sent to us by Rockaway historian, James Supple. This is from a 1928 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Both buildings still exist today, though not quite as what they were. Visitors today will soon be able to stay at The Rockaway Hotel on Beach 108th Street and Rogers on Beach 116th Street. And AirBnB options are also available in Rockaway.

Note the phone numbers in the ad, only five numbers. We presume you called and got an operator who would connect the call.
