It's hard to believe that it's been over 4 years since the Seaside boardwalk fire consumed the whole Seaside Park boardwalk aside from Sawmill, and turned a good portion of the southern end of Seaside Heights' beachfront to ashes as well.

But as much as the boardwalk has recovered, there's still a lot of work to do.

Last summer we saw around half a dozen businesses open in new buildings just north of Sawmill, and just today I took a walk down the boardwalk to check out the construction that's going on now.

Between the half dozen new buildings in the middle of the boardwalk, there's also a pier that's been built over the beach. According to reports, it could all be part of a new, large bar/club/pool complex.

It's been a long road to recovery and rebuilding, but we're getting there!

Of course, being out here at our Seaside Park studio every Friday, I'll keep you updated throughout the summer on the progress!
