Bradley Beach has made a tremendous amount of progress putting the beach back together. From what I’ve observed, the borough has been working non-stop to re-grade the beach and construct new dunes.
It is for good reason that Governor Christie singled us out as an example of what towns along the coast should be doing to recover from the damage caused by Sandy.
In the next couple of weeks, I’ll start a new photo series to show the progress being made in Bradley Beach, Asbury Park, Ocean Grove and Avon by the Sea.
My husband Mike and I live up North in Pompton Plains but we always go down to Bradley Beach, Ocean Grove during the summer. We love a restaurant called Citrico’s in Bradley Beach and would love to come down to dinner tonight. I just tried calling their phone number and it just rang and rang. I hope it is still in business and would love to have dinner there tonight. It is only 10:30 am so maybe they haven’t opened yet. Do you know if
they are still there since Sandy and operational . Thanks for your help.
As far as I know they’re still open. The lights were on when I drove by there last weekend. There wasn’t any damage on Main Street and it’s a very popular restaurant.
My wife and I are also quite fond of it. Let us know if you hear anything!
I was at Bradley this past weekend and the sand has so many broken sea shells. Why is this?
We’re down almost every weekend and have watched the progress which has been made on the beach. The town has had to move a considerable amount of sand around to get the beach ready, because of the massive erosion which occurred after Sandy. I assume that all this bulldozer work has broken a lot of the shells.
What you may be seeing are shells which have been buried for years and are now being turned up.
Dear The Captain,
I would like to speak with you about some of your images of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I can be reached by email. Thank you.
