Seaside Heights gets rid of the “Jersey Shore” club

Who aged Seaside Heights, you or me?

You were the place to have fun when I was a little boy. Before I even went to school, I went to your place. I remember being so young and spending a night in a cottage my uncle let us use. My mother and brother were already in bed. I think too much sugar on the boards was keeping me awake. My father was sleepy while I spoke to him ear. I finally told him he didn’t have to stay with me. I would watch “Creature Feature” or something, and then I would go to bed.

“Someday I won’t be able to sit down and talk to you like that, so no, I’m here.”

I never forgot what he told me. The words made more sense over the years and I have experienced fatherhood myself. They meant so much more when he died.

Seaside Heights, you were my childhood. My special summer days. In my twenties you were where I spent my honeymoon in my first marriage, penniless and too young to know we were better as friends. At the end, we went there too, out of season, in the middle of winter. The notes to Santa Claus from little children as young as me when I found out you were hanging on those decorated walls there on your walk. They perfectly represented how naive she and I had been and how sad we had become.

When I brought my own children to you, I saw you with new eyes. There were no more places that had been must-sees. There was no Sodl’s restaurant to take my children like my father took me. Your trip to the haunted house was long gone. So many changes that you and I have gone through. You had a bad reputation. Me too. But we’ve both always wanted better for ourselves and we always seem to fail.

Well now I hear you have yet another change coming. You are finally parting ways with that old Bamboo club that gave you the black eye so proverbial in the days of the “Jersey Shore“.

Remember the epic fight Roger had with JWoww’s ex with Ronnie and the club goers? MTV called it “the greatest fight in ‘Jersey Shore’ history.” Yes, right there at Bamboo.

Well the Bamboo Bar has been closed for two years. Now you Seaside Heights in a moment of maturity have decided to move on. The 201 Boulevard building is being demolished. This is expected to happen in the next four to six weeks and will eventually be replaced by luxury condos and retail units.

I admire you Seaside Heights. You are trying to revitalize your strip and improve your overall image. Just as you wisely chose to demolish this steel skeleton that has remained unfinished for years on the same street. I feel like we are both soul mates. Only I wish I could make changes as easily as you.

We both suffered our losses. I lost my own Jet Stars in the sea and my own fires on the promenade. Hope you keep your rooftop golf course and your sky ride. If you promise to keep them, I’ll try to hold on to the good that I have left.

Because changes are difficult. And as I face some of my own, I think man, you and I have really gone through the wringer sometimes. Hang on. I want to grow old with you Seaside Heights.

You might be the only one with me.
