The Old AT&T Building in Bayville, NJ; What’s Being Done With it?
I live close to this building in Bayville and it's so sad to drive by. And, it's creepy looking at night.
What an awesome location for something great at the Jersey Shore? Marshes are all around it with a beautiful location right on the water.
The land was purchased in the 1930s or maybe before that. The facilities were a high-frequency, shortwave radio transmitting station providing telephone high-seas service to ships at seas and to overseas locations under the call sign WOO, according to www.long-lines.net.
There were antennas and poles were once surrounding the marshlands. They were removed several years ago and the property was donated to the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge, according to patch.com.
The building is so rundown and I believe every single window has been broken. There is a fence around the building in Bayville, right on the edge of Ocean Gate.
If the building was donated to Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge, why aren't they fixing it up for something fantastic like a teaching place. It's such an unbelievably beautiful spot right along the bay. I believe the building sits very close to sea level, so maybe that's why nothing has been done. So, if that's the case, how about just removing it?
Every time I drive on Bayview in Bayville, I think it would be the perfect building for a haunted house in the fall. It would make the perfect haunted house.
It's truly unfortunate that it was so damaged so badly over the years. But, if there's any hope for something to be put there, what would you like to see?
