Title: Seaside boardwalk on fire
Post by: Ryan on September 12, 2013, 05:01:49 PM
Home from work early and put on channel 7 and Funtown pier on fire and had spread halfway up the boardwalk. Pretty nuts, they can't catch a break. ???

Sigh. It looks like a scene from a bad movie.

It's just unbelievable. I never spent a lot of time there, but I've been there enough to feel connected. This is just tragic. 32 businesses lost - as if Sandy hadn't been brutal enough. My heart goes out to the people of Seaside.

awful to see.  I haven't been in many many years but have fond memories of rides on that carousel, the Octopus (or was it the Spider?) and the log flume, Kohrs custard, big floppy pieces of pizza and the sounds of the prize wheels spinning.  (grandparents used to take me for the occasional day trip)
