Sad Days for Seaside Heights

I have spent a lot of summers and fall weekends on the Barnegat Peninsula, from Pt. Pleasant to Seaside Heights.  I was thus very saddened by this video sent to me a few minutes ago by my former student Georgiana Iasnik:

I also hear that the piers on the Seaside Heights boardwalk are gone and the amusement rides have been swept out to sea.

I have occasionally devoted blog posts to the peninsula.  See
