Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore

Rick Geffken, author of Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore, will speak about how the Jersey shore became the most famous vacation and recreational destination in the coastal United States.  James Bradley in Asbury Park and William Sandlass, Jr.  in Highland Beach created mass entertainment for hundreds of thousands of people.  Their seaside recreation centers, along with those in Long Branch, Bradley Beach, Pleasure Bay, and others lasted for years but now have become fond and faded memories of boardwalks, saltwater taffy, and exhilarating rides.  Please join us Monday, July 8 at 7 pm.
