Anyway........................ I'm from North Jersey & do not enjoy the atmosphere of seaside. I go down the Shore for quite & peace. Cape May has always been my favorite (even as a child).
Very beautiful, very serene environment. I will go to Hoboken, NYC, Newark if I want a ruckus nightlife.
I don't need to drive for an hour & a half for that.
Good video never the less. It should change its title, however. This is only a small slice of New Jersey life, not a representative of the whole.
ROTFLMAO. The missing teeth is State wide.

Good Lord, could this guy have picked any place OTHER than Seaside, aka the trashiest place in the world? It's bad enough that everybody from NY associates NJ with this trashy town.

They could have picked Asbury Park.

And by the year 2034 the govt will pass a bill requiring anyone who's name has more letters then the entire alphabet will be required to change to a more normal earthling name.

Also in that same year the wonderful Amish people will take over the entire PA government rule.

Hey maybe by then a PA team might even win a pennant !!!

I too remember Seaside over 35 years ago. It was great from a kid's point of view. But haven't been there for many years. Is it that bad?

It's a fun place to kill a day or two, during the summer season, where you and your kids can ride on rides and play arcade games while you people watch, eat delicious, politically incorrect food and chill out.

I never had a problem with Seaside, either as a kid or adult. Some people have complained that it was over run with rowdy teens during the summer but I never noticed it.

Asbury is/was a different story. The Boardwalk, alone, was boarded up and almost completely shut down.

I think it was a good idea to focus on Seaside Heights because that's a place everyone goes atleast once a year from all over. He's right about feeling the seasons change hard. I use to go on the sand at night eating food until 2 or 3 am when the fourwheelers tell us to pack up. Met an Israeli girl in some shop but she was going back to Israeli in Sept. Saw my only magic trick - a realll magic trick at Seaside, this guy made an orange disappear and did it over and over freakin amazing. Once stole a stuffed animal because the game guy tricked us thinking that a puny stuffed animal was large. Once walked from Seaside Park to get a pizza, seeing the ferris wheel in the distance we didnt think it would be a 3 miles walk! Then when we got the pizza back sand blew in it.
