A tale of two boardwalks
As the Seaside boardwalk fire continues to smolder, many are taking advantage of today’s comfortably cool weather to stroll the boards.
The vast majority of Seaside Heights’ boardwalk was not damaged.
The New Heights Festival is this weekend in the borough.
Various published reports yesterday that the fire was deemed “suspicious” are false, officials say.
The investigation is ongoing.
Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers and Seaside Park Mayor Robert Matthies have vowed to rebuild.
Akers tells WCBS 880 that not rebuilding would be “far worse,” and Matthies has pledged to help business owners.
