Coral Sands (Golden Nugget) Motel

The first view was postmarked in 1964 and features the Golden Nugget Motel located at 1010 Boulevard. The reverse side of the postcard indicates that the motel was named the Heights Motel, but by 1964 it had been renamed the Golden Nugget Motel. Someone – perhaps “Larry and Barb” who mailed the postcard to friends residing in Rahway, NJ – noted with a pen the location of the motel’s pool because the pool hadn’t been constructed yet when the scene was photographed. Also, the St. Charles Hotel – one of the town’s earliest rooming houses – is visible in the background on a Sheridan Avenue lot behind the Golden Nugget.
