Morey's New Parking Lot and Cedar Ave. Boardwalk Entrance


I love it..this has always been my favorite spot to enter the boardwalk since I was a kid. mainly, because that's where Castle Dracula was. and in the early 90's, the movie theater was there, Photon, the comedy clubs across the was a great block. it looks nice and I look forward to walking up that ramp next week, always picturing Castle Dracula there..

Wow, Photon. For a few years, my brother and I were obsessed with it. There was a home version that we begged our parents to buy for us, and we actually got it one Christmas. It was probably a bit ahead of its time because laser tag took off about a decade later, IIRC.


We used to park in a lot down the block, behind the hotel with the Rusty Rudder (forget the name). The parking lot entrance lane had a metal rod that you drove over with your car (I'm guessing to count how many cars entered and exited the lot); the Rusty Rudder had three small fountains along the side of the building and we'd always run to make sure they were all working. The things you do (and remember doing) as kids!

  • 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  • This is a bit outdated.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.)
