The Last Bath House: Built to, well, Last!

“The term ‘bath house’ is kind of outdated,” Tony Galente said as he surveyed the new facilities at his 13th Street Bikes, Bath House and Parking. “Tell people you run a bath house and they say ‘what’s that?’ That’s why we have the sign over there that says ‘showers.’” When it comes to the age-old Jersey Shore tradition of bath houses, Galente and his wife Janet are the keepers of the flame. Or at least keepers of shampoo, body wash and towels. Up until the 1970s, bath houses abounded not only in Ocean City but most other shore communities...

Hooked on Houses: Night in Venice at “Four Decks”

This Night in Venice Party has been raging for years on the North Point Lagoon. Same party, new location- the iconic “Four Decks” house. After purchasing their home in 2015 the reigns were passed over to Kirk & Suzy. For as long as I can remember the event was hosted by Kirk’s parents. Their summer home is located just a kayak ride away on the same lagoon. Over the years the themes have varied- Western, Disco, Prehistoric times, and even the 80’s. Costumes are required, and everyone gets into the spirit. The house is wrapped to match the theme, and the music sets the stage. The continuation of this event is a perfect example of Ocean City traditions being passed down year after year...

Mayor’s Update: July 27

I had the pleasure on Monday of showing New Jersey’s new Department of Environmental Protection commissioner some of the sites where Ocean City is working to protect the shoreline, enhance wetlands, dredge shallow waterways and remediate for flooding. Catherine McCabe visited with Assistant Commissioners Dave Rosenblatt and Ginger Kopkash, Chief of Staff Eric Wachter and Assistant to the Commissioner Chris Gough...

North End Neighborhood Drainage Project

The North End Drainage Project was awarded through City Council on December 28, 2017 to the contractor L. Feriozzi Concrete Co. As a result of the city letting the contractor work during the summer, the contractor has made tremendous progress and is moving significantly faster. Allowing the contractor to work during the summer has also resulted in rapid response time from the utility companies. This is especially true with South Jersey Gas, since gas can’t be shut off without the homeowner present after October 1. If everything goes according to plan and weather permitting, this project will be complete by the end of the year. The contractor has...
