Funtown Pier sign lies in the smoldering ruins in an aerial view of the devastation after a massive fire began yesterday in Seaside Park and spread north, wiping out 4 blocks of boardwalk attractions into Seaside Heights. 9/13/2013 (Andrew Mills/the Star Ledger
April 18th 2013 saw a notable event take place in the tale of the rebuild of the Jersey Shore. The Ferris Wheel at Funtown Pier in Seaside Park was finally brought down in a controlled demolition. It had sustained irrepairable damage when the Funtown Pier collapsed during Hurricane Sandy.
I’ve photographed it for years at the shore, and though I knew it had to come down, I’ll miss seeing it.
