    A Sea Bright condominium complex site destroyed by Superstorm Sandy floodwaters will become a park. 

    Crews demolished the Anchorage Apartments building yesterday, marking the end to over two years of sitting vacant along Route 36, the main thoroughfare in the borough. 

    The state Department of Environmental Protection purchased the property with Green Acres funding for about $2 million, NJ.com reported

    Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long tweeted yesterday that the demolition marked “the end of an era” and the “beginning of a new open space park.”

    The 1.2-acre property, situated just north of the Rumson Bridge, affords sweeping views of the Shrewsbury River.
