Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Rick Geffken’s, Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore, brings together rarely seen images from the Library of Congress, local historical societies, and private collections to document how the Jersey Shore became the most famous vacation and recreational destination in the coastal United States. The remarkable details in these pictures capture a simpler way of life in our country, when families took their children to boardwalks to savor candy apples, salt water taffy, hot dogs and hamburgers, popcorn, and, of course, the rides.
