Beach Front Property and Riviera & Stardust Motel For Sale

Aug 1

I read the listing for the boardwalk property. Are they serious when they say you could develop it as condos?

no way..I can't imagine that happening

I have become more familiar with the neighborhood of the Riviera and Stardust in recent years, and although I haven't stayed at either of them I've been more inclined to consider them lately. I hope we don't lose them.

The Stardust has always looked nice. It would be a shame to lose that and the Riviera, especially because that's one spot on the island where there remains a heavy concentration of motels. Isn't the "new" Rio also up for sale? And maybe one or two more along that stretch?


I can't see a condo being approved for the Old Time Photo building, nor can I see anyone in a sane frame of mind wanting a condo there. How would one get to it? And what kind of peace and quiet could reasonably be expected of anything in that spot during the desirable summer months. Honestly, there's a small part of me that wouldn't mind those buildings on the ocean side of the boardwalk being removed. There's nothing attractive about something that amounts to a large garage blocking the view of the beach.

"Peace and quiet" will be scarce during summer peak, that's for sure. Boardwalk businesses, especially the games with miked announcers, are pushing noise to a pretty abusive level these days.

  • did bonellis market building sell? I saw an address in property transfers that I believe is the market.
  • looks like they want to have a stretch focusing on retail and new decorations:
  • This is a bit outdated. I was going to post this earlier this past summer, however my laptop died- along with all my bookmarks. Back on August 7 , The Dom Giordano Program on Philadelphia talk radio station 1210 WPHT interviewed Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano. It was supposed to be an interview about Ocean City, NJ's problem with seagulls and how Wildwood deals with their seagulls. In addition to seagulls, the interview touched on some other topics including the season in general and Pacific Ave. Something I learned from the interview... I never knew Wildwood is known as "The blue collar Riviera". In reference to the seagulls, the mayor commented, "They actually are our best cleaners of the beach...Without them our beaches would be a hell of a lot dirtier". Concerning Pacific Avenue, the Mayor said, although they're trying to revitalize Pacific Ave., "Our main street basically in the summer is the boardwalk... You can't compete against the boardwalk". Anyway, here is a link to the interview in case anyone is interested in listening to it... in case anyone is interested, here is a link to a more recent interview from October 15 , from the same radio program in which the Mayor is interviewed about the Philadelphia woman who was arrested on the beach last summer, who is now suing Wildwood. The Mayor refers to the lawsuit as a "money grab". Link to article and audio clip... (In both interviews, the Mayor sounds a bit nervous when commenting about his re-election coming up in November.)
