Hurricane Sandy – Seaside Heights “The Day After”

I filmed this early in the afternoon on the day after the hurricane made landfall. The weather was cold and windy, and water still filled most streets in Seaside Heights.

Men Must Wear Shirts

Rules. Much to the disappointment of the women I am sure.

1963 Golden Anniversary Vacation Ad

I scanned this colorful Seaside Heights page from a 1963 NJ vacation guide that I recently acquired. Note the reference to the town’s Golden Anniversary that year.  Next year Seaside Heights celebrates the Big 100!

1962 1963 1970 Old Film Clips

More great stuff from Joe @ Greenrose Media…

1985 Seaside Heights Commercial & Raw Footage

This half hour video contains awesome film footage of Seaside Heights circa 1985. Nearly 2 hours of raw film footage was found by Peter Smith at the Seaside Heights Boro Hall and then cut into this video by Joe Verderosa of Greenrose Media.  The video includes a 1985 Seaside Heights TV commercial, great shots of the beach and boardwalk, Rainbow Rapids, Maruca’s Pizza, Razzles nightclub, Pac Man, Casino Pier, Sun-N-Fun signs, Barnegat Bay activities like crabbing, fishing, jet skiing, and power-sailing, and shots of some boardwalk concessions, the merry-go-round, Sonny’s & Rickey’s, Midway, and the rides.

Lifeguards & Beach Beauties

Lifeguards and the girls of summer are as much a part of the Seaside Heights summer scene as merry-go-rounds and Kohr’s ice cream!

Easter (1972)




I can’t recall ever reading Seaside Heights referred to as “Trenton-By-The-Sea” until I saw this 1963 newspaper clipping from the Terry Groffie Collection. Fyi, you can enlarge the image with your mouse.

Surf Fishing

Fall surf fishing is heating up!  These old postcards are a reminder that catching bluefish and bass in the suds (and the occasional sand shark or skate) is a favorite pastime of Seaside Heights locals.
