I have been a Jersey Boy for 50+ years. My early childhood had my parents and I visit Lavallette N.J. every year for two weeks during the summer for some 18 years.  Seaside Heights was my favorite hangout when I  grew older.  Just a long walk along the beach at evening to check out the night time action.  These are some old postcards of NJ, the Jersey Shore and I'll get to post some photos I took when visiting.  Somewhere in the late '80s I tool a trip to Asbury Park and photographed the last of the buildings.  I'll hunt them down. The main pier was still open and I did shoot a number of shots inside the buildings.
