Most NJ boardwalks to be rebuilt by Memorial Day

Most New Jersey boardwalks damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy will be rebuilt by Memorial Day weekend.

An Associated Press survey of shore communities that bore the brunt of Sandy found only three where portions of boardwalk won't be open by the traditional start of the summer season.

Seaside Heights expects the main section of its boardwalk to be rebuilt by the holiday, with the rest complete by mid-June.

Sea Girt says only a 300-foot stretch of its nearly mile-long boardwalk won't be finished by Memorial Day. But the town says that work should be done by June 1.

A mile-long stretch of old boardwalk on the southern end of Long Branch won't be rebuilt this year. But a newer boardwalk and paved promenade that had minimal damage are already open.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
