Point Pleasant Beach Turns Down MTV

The Jersey shore town that tried to close its bars early and restricts overnight parking has
said no to “Snooki & JWoww.”

The Point Pleasant Beach Council unanimously voted against 495 Productions’ request to tape the “Jersey Shore” spinoff featuring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley.

The request says the cast would be living outside the town. Councilman William Mayer tells the Asbury Park Press it’s not what the town needs at this point.

The state’s top liquor regulator is blocking the town from imposing a midnight bar closing. The time and overnight parking restrictions are designed to reduce noise near the beachfront.

Nearby Toms River also turned down the MTV reality series as did Morristown.

Toms River would have to change an ordinance in place since The Amityville Horror was filmed there in 1979.

According to the township code, “the use of a lot or residential dwelling for the production of a television or other advertising commercial or movie or video made for commercial purposes is prohibited.” Business Administrator Paul Shives says Toms Rivers’ experience with the Amityville Horror was “not very good.”

“Snooki & JWoww” taped its first season in Jersey City.
