The Inlet - Scenes From Atlantic City's Nostalgic Past



The Absecon Inlet's South Jetty marks the end of Atlantic City's beach at the north end. Before the jetty was built, the beach continued around seamlessly merging with the shore of the inlet. At the inlet there was a popular and busy "Yachting and Fishing Pier" that connected to the Boardwalk. A little further back along the shore of the inlet were the then famous Captain Starn's and Hackneys seafood restaurants.
