The Jersey Shore Postcard Series - Point Pleasant Beach Forman Ave (3 of 4)

The Jersey Shore Postcard Series - Point Pleasant Beach Forman Ave (3 of 4)

So this one is a bit special to us as our family once owned a home on Forman ave for a VERY LONG time, but with time...comes change and that home has welcomed a new family! :)

So what's so special about this thoroughfare you ask? well...it's famous of course! at least to us that is. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you might of heard of the classic horror movie called The Amityville Horror. St Peter's Church (newly renovated and beautifully done btw) was used in this movie as well as Pleasure Park right across the street.

Forman avenue is also dotted with some very cool vintage boarding homes that have entertained travelers from all over the country visiting the Jersey shore, some still standing today. The one that stands out the most to us is The Tower Cottage B&B, I still remember walking by when I was younger and staring up at the tower like structure wondering what was up there!

The history list continues with The Little Silver Lake which runs along part of Forman avenue and was part of our backyard, we spent hours and hours fishing trying to land the big one but usually fought with the eels! Ever hear of eel races?! yuk! We also spent time paddling around in our rubber raft (won at the boardwalk of course!)...speaking of boats, I still remember walking around the lake to check out the the Power Boats that were put on display for the Benihana Grand Prix. Good times.

The Jersey Shore Postcard Series - Manasquan Inlet 1976 (2 of 4)

The Jersey Shore Postcard Series - Manasquan Inlet 1976 (2 of 4)

Next up from the cobwebs of our beach garage...not as old as the 1918 Asbury Park Postcard we have but still a cool looking picture of the Manasquan inlet.

We have spent MANY Saturday evenings walking through the Fisherman's Cove Conservation Area checking out birds and at one time spying on a fox den! (I dont think they are there anymore though). The other place that we frequently visit is the Squan Tavern, GREAT bar pies and always FRESH fried calamari! Cool NJ Devils memorabilia inside too. Manasquan is a great little town to visit and unique stores on main street to checkout.

Happy Labor Day weekend too!

Speaking of birds...checkout our new water resistant tablet/e book cases! The Toucan is waiting ;)

The cool thing about living in a house that had MANY generations of our family in is that you can find some neat vintage items! We recently came across 4 postcards after cleaning our garage and thought they would be nice to share.

We still cant believe they made it through so many coastal storms...especially hurricane Sandy!
