Funtown Pier burns
The south end of the Seaside Heights boardwalk, including FunTown Pier, is burning down (the iconic roller coaster was at the north end). The amusement Pier hadn't reopened this past summer, but dozens of boardwalk businesses in the Funtown section had. Most of the section lies in Seaside Park, the town south of Heights, & they always always correct you! The entire boardwalk was replaced. The Jersey Shore has already suffered so much, & the part from the Seasides north got the worse of Hurricane Sandy. The wind is blowing the fire north, the line of heavy showers expected there failed to materialize.
