STR8FXXXINEDGE Posted September 14, 2013 Share Posted September 14, 2013 This post that The Jersey Shore made on their Facebook page really cleared things up as to where this all took place for me, and I thought some others may like to see it as well. "Since there has been so much confusion created by the news media such as the boardwalk being being 80% damaged, the historic century old carousel being destroyed, the newly laid boardwalk being destroyed, etc - I have created this map of key landmarks so people can get a better idea of the truth. 1) - the boardwalk was NOT replaced between Stockton Ave and just south of Dupont, NORTH of Dupont Ave is the new boardwalk. Basically only one block of the newly laid boardwalk was destroyed. 2) The carousel that was destroyed was located as the Carousel Arcade by Funtown, while the historic century old carousel is located at Casino Arcade by Casino Pier. 3) The main fire stopped at Dupont Ave, but did jumped to Lincoln Ave and destroyed the buildings south of Lincoln Ave and the NORTHERN side of Beachcomber. The southern side of Beachcomber closest to the main fire along Dupont was untouched and even in aerial photos you can clearly see the outside tables where I ate on Monday untouched along with the ramp. 4) The new boardwalk was ripped up to make the trench at Lincoln Ave to try to prevent the fire from going north beyond that point. I hope this will show that 80% of the boardwalk is NOT destroyed and the fire - while large - was contained within a rather small section that makes up the ENTIRE Seaside Boardwalk. BTW - the dotted line indicates the border of Seaside Heights." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
