Orbital View: The Venice of New Jersey

OK, that’s probably too generous a description of this waterfront community off Manahawkin Bay. But the view is still pretty cool:

This area, along with Long Beach Island to the east, was heavily damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Both are part of the Jersey Shore, a term that, depending on who you are, evokes either fond memories of family vacations or gross memories of the MTV reality show. For me, it’s the former—but I’m a Wildwood fan.
