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.

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.

Casino Pier 1950s

This is a hard to find real photo postcard that shows the fishing pier from the amusement pier side facing east rather than from the ocean side facing west.  In fact, most of the Casino Pier fishing pier postcards in my collection are aerial shots with the camera pointed toward the west.  This card was postmarked on July 12, 1955. It was mailed by a young boy named Keith to his grandmother, Mrs. James Coyle, in Rutherford, NJ.
