Seaside Park, New Jersey

Along the shore in New Jersey, just about in the middle of Ocean County, stands a proud and pleasant community. The boardwalk at Seaside Park was a place to see. With the surf, the beach, and the warm sunshine, visitors could enjoy a day so fine. This used to be a nice spot for a vacation. However, their boardwalk has suffered devastation. Most stores have been destroyed in a conflagration. The fire started in an ice cream parlor somehow. Charred ruins and ashes are all that is left now. The town never fully recovered from a storm last year. Seaside Park must find a way to persevere. from a local news story

    A great write, Robert! I went to Seaside Heights every summer when I was a child. So sad to see on the news all the devastation there. It is a strong community, however. I know they will rebuild. Love and blessings, Rhonda

    A very fitting tribute to a spot that has suffered a lot in a short time. At least no one died!
