SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – For one Jersey Shore town, new progress has been made on the journey back from Superstorm Sandy.
The boardwalk is the backbone of any shore town. No boardwalk means no tourists and no money.
In Seaside Heights, they made it a priority and, on Wednesday, awarded a $3.6 million rebuilding contract.
“A lot of people love Seaside and want to see what’s happening this year,” Mayor William Akers said. “If they don’t come back, we don’t eat.”
Borough Administrator John Camera said they’ll be ready to see you by Memorial Day.
