I can't believe it - Funtown Amusement Pier in Seaside may close. :( It may be demolished completely for redevelopment. Funtown Amuseument Pier is an big part of Seaside. Casino Pier is larger but Funtown is sitll a big part. Having the two amusement pier is great.

The owner wants to frigging build CONDOS on the pier. At least right now it isn't zoned for that. I am completely against this - there is no reason for their to condos right on the boardwalk like that. If they were to build - then you'd get people *****ing about the noise of the boardwalk and stuff (nevermind that it was there BEFORE their homes, that never stops anyone).

I agree, Seaside wouldn't be the same.

One of the best beach areas I've seen for homeowners, the boardwalk, and the beach all sharing space in harmony is Point Pleasant Beach. One end of the boardwalk has old beach cottages right on it, then there is a transitional section with nothing much of all, then the area similar to Seaside's with food stands, amusements, etc. (Jenkinson's Pavillion) Too bad all beach towns didn't develop along those lines.

I don't know if Pt. Pleasant planned it that way, or if it just happened, but I like the mix.

Aren't there two towns involved with the zoning (Seaside Heights and Seaside Park). The dividing line is on the boarder of Porter Avenue. (It goes right through the Berkley Sweet Shop {not the one in the Carousel House})

It would be a shame if it happened. (Iam also against zoning the boardwalk for housing.) The board walk should be available for all.

I personally do not think I would want a house standing over the ocean. Although if I had as much money as would be needed to own a house over the ocean, I may not have any $$$ concerns about living over the ocean.
