Oceanic House - 1850

I missed this ad for the Oceanic House, 1850. I'll admit, the idea of waves fresh from the ocean amused opposed to an ocean beach with stale ocean waves?


C.M. ROGERS would inform his old patrons, friends and the community--all those who are desirous of visiting the sea shore, that his Oceanic House, Coney Island, will be opened on Saturday, June 8.

This will be found one of the best and safest bathing places in the whole range of the Coast. The fine surfs, fresh from the ocean are nowhere surpassed. The visitor will find delightful rides in the vicinity, and have a fine view of all vessels coming in and going to sea.

Steamers leave the Island six or eight times a day, and stages morning and evening. The Oceanic House is only one hours ride from New York, or Brooklyn, by water or land. CHAS. M. ROGERS

Mr. F. HENSHAW will be at the Astor House until the 8th, from 10 to 3 o'clock, each day, to wait upon any persons desirous of making arrangements for board during the season. [je5 3t*] CHAS. M. ROGERS
