Point Pleasant Beach NJ

Click to enlarge. North end of the boardwalk well away from the amusement area. Despite an unfortunate condo development in the parking area, this remains a favorite Jersey shore location, particularly around sunset when there's a lot of boat traffic in the inlet. The people fishing along the bulkhead are regulars who don't care if they catch anything, a local scene with the flavor of a time when you didn't have to be rich to live near the water. There's a monument to fishermen lost at sea, a classic Coast Guard building, no frills motels, sea food restaurants, docks, & fishing boats of all kinds, including some rusty old trawlers.

It's sad but inevitable I suppose that the people moving to the Jersey shore have little knowledge of the history or respect for what remains of it.
