A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
This classic wood yacht was at the head of Tuckerton Creek by the Stewart’s Root Beer docks for a number of years. My best guess on the last time I saw her was probably in the late 1990’s
A railroad once ran to Long Beach Island. Once on the island, the tracks split. One line went north to Barnegat Light and the other went south to Third Street in Beach Haven. You may have wondered about the extra lanes on the boulevard. These were where sidings were for the railroad. When the automobile bridge was opened, the new boulevard followed the railroad. It had to go around the sidings. Today they are simply a place for extra parking.
