Keansburg NJ

The Raritan Bay boardwalk town without a boardwalk. One storm too many, they went with asphalt. The family-owned amusement park was very badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy, but they are rebuilding & promise to reopen for the summer.  This photo was apparently taken in the early Sixties, after Hurricane Donna had wiped out the  shore section of the long  fishing pier. The amusement park has  expanded  considerably over the past decade.  There was much talk & rumor prior to that of it being torn down & replaced with condo development. It still has a wonderful underclass charm about it. True Jersey boardwalk fans like Keansburg.
