Very, very sad. Many of those places had just re-opened after Hurricane Sandy wiped them out.

Gee, Snooki's boardwalk bites it again!!!!

Not a nice place, too much booze, and testosterone. Along with a town that has taken soaking the tourist to new levels.

God knocked this place down with a Superstorm last year. You'd think they'd get the hint!

Even if you have ill thoughts about Seaside, this is a huge loss and tragedy for those who live down the shore, such as my cousins, and those who have childhood memories of the boardwalk. I wish Seaside a speedy recovery!

I don't have ill thoughts, just tellin it like it is. If your 21 and looking for a place to get drunk down the shore this place is perfect! If you are anybody else, find another shore town. Any other shore town! Especially if you have a family. Unfortunately these places aren't what they were 30 or 40 years ago.

I'll give you that it's a huge loss. A temporary loss. It is not a tragedy. No one was killed. No one was hurt. All the businesses were in wind down mode. The season is over. It will get rebuilt with insurance money and state aid. Business owners will be reimbursed for lost property, inventory, and revenue. And, if these towns remain true to form, every New Jersey taxpayer will get stuck with part of the bill. We get to pay to rebuild the boardwalk.

Last time I was in SeaSide on the brdwalk I was amazed how much it it had not changed since I was a child. My family was going there in the 40s i think. I remember the 50s somewhat.

Sad. I lived in Ocean City, Zj for 18 years and remember our boardwalk going up in flames. Fire spread quick and was devastating. Cheers to the people of Seaside and a speedy recovery.

I kind of think sometimes "tellin' it like it is" is best kept between you and yourself. Every thought doesn't always have to be verbalized publicly, especially in situations like this.

If your boat ever gets destroyed, remember these words, and think about how you would feel if I said them.
