North Wildwood's Changing Beach:


Early Aerial Photo 25th Street to 15th Street



In the upper right hand corner of the picture you can see the old Manor Hotel (24th and Surf - site of today's Hawaiian Rumble Golf Course - the Manor Hotel is the tall building immediately to the right of the building with the red roof). The picture extends north approximately 10 blocks to 15th Street, the present location of the NWBP tent . The last bend in the boardwalk (toward the middle of the picture) is approximately where today's boardwalk ends. If the entire boardwalk as you see it in the picture existed today the beach tent would be to the left of that boardwalk.

Beach Tent February 2005

After receding some 1500 feet between the time represented in the earliest photo above and the 1991 date represented by the satellite photo, the ocean is once again within a few feet of the beach tent. Is this ocean intrusion a cyclical phenomenon? Will the ocean recede again? Or, are the days of the beach tent numbered? Stay tuned.
