A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
The USS Monssen was being towed while the March 1962 Nor’easter ravaged Long Beach Island. She broke loose from her tow and ended up hard aground in Holgate.
This was most likely taken in the 1950’s, possible around 1956. This is the cove between 16 and 17th streets in North Beach Haven. Residents would moor their boats in the cove.

This is an aerial photo of North Beach Haven from the bay between West 17th and West 18th Streets in North Beach Haven. Many of the houses in this photo have been torn down and modern homes built.
This photo was definitely taken after 1955 in North Beach Haven. The closest street, in the lower right hand corner, is West 16th Street.
This is an Aerial view of the bayside of North Beach Haven and part of Spray Beach. The Boulevard is clearly visible. The Spray Beach Yacht Club is visible in the top left of the photo. I’m not sure of the exact date, but judging from the vehicles, it is probably from the 1940’s.
