Though today one may struggle to find a direct comparison between the eternal city of Rome and Hackney’s, “The Famous Garden of Seafood,” the restaurant’s proprietors decided to make the case with the catchy slogan, “All Roads Lead to Hackney’s.”

To support their assertion, (despite the eatery’s location at the northern tip of the Boardwalk) the map boldly highlights in red the various routes a hungry patron could theoretically take to the restaurant. Cars, buses, cabs (jitneys), trolleys, railroads, boats and even seaplanes are shown heading east; all in the direction of Hackney’s.

On the verso of the sheet is a smaller map of the eastern seaboard of the United States, showing “the shortest routes from Hackney’s” – all the way to Florida!
