Well in honor of Casino Pier finally opening the ride pier this past weekend I thought I'd post my pics from my trip to the Seaside Boardwalk from the beginning of July. I will use CP for Casino Pier abbreviation and FTP for Funtown Pier. I will start with Casino Pier and let you know when it changes to Funtown Pier (it's pretty obvious) The entire set of pictures can be found here(I put them public so anyone can see them) :

One thing I want to mention before I start is please still keep those in your thoughts and prayers who are still struggling and have not been able to rebuild. Just because the boardwalks at all the touristy destinations are looking good it doesn't reflect the entire shore:


Taken in Mantoloking on rte 35 on our way to Seaside


Taken in Ortley Beach on our way in

We went to Seaside to see the new boardwalk - we were planning on a day at the beach somewhere but the weather was very cloudy and a bit cool so we decided to check out Seaside. Here are some pics of the boardwalk and ride piers.


Some of the ramp areas have been paved and have temporary entry ramps - some are not yet finished.


All 400 Kohr's stands are up and running LOL (for Mike G)


Chairs from the Sky-ride look pretty good but it's not up yet


Casino Pier Carousel in the arcade is up and running beautifully


Wide angle of Casino Pier - still removing the second pier while getting rides up on the first


Swings being put up at CP


Disco looks ready to go! (it's open now)


Casino Pier roof top mini-golf is open and we played a game. Also got great pics from the roof of the pier.


Casino Pier from rooftop


Pirate's Hideaway looks to be re-tracked and close to ready


Surf Shack is up as well


Behind the Surf Shack where the Disc-o is


Still a lot of work to be done


Old boardwalk that was still intact and the old sign for Funtown Pier


Old FTP entrance


For comparison this is what it used to look like


FTP has done no rebuilding yet. Some old rides still remain and the pier is still in shambles. They are claiming they will open 2014


Typhoon ride remains


The sky coaster stilts remain


Tower of Fear still standing


Cars from the Ferris Wheel still remain.


Midway is back in full swing


Laughing Gulls are flying at my head once again which can only mean things are getting back to normal, LOL!


You know it baby! :-)

It's good see the piers are coming along nicely, although it's sad to still see all those homes torn apart.

Thanks for sharing.

I want a Kohrs fresh-squeezed orangeade right now!!! If not sooner!
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist...

I just saw this article and thought it would be very appropriate for this post:
