5.0 out of 5 stars " Down the Jersey Shore"
I grew up on the jersey shore (Monmouth County) and spent summers working at Island Beach State Park in Ocean County. This book gives wonderful accouts of the people and places for which I hold such fond memories. It is well written and includes many old photos of the shore and it's people.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting, historic portrait of the Jersey shore.
Roberts' "Down the Jersey Shore" is packed with historical facts, photos and information. While his style is scholarly, he seems to neglect the passionate side of life in this special place. I found myself hoping he would explore the contemporary shore lifestyle, as a compliment to his historical fact-finding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable summary of the lore of the Shore, March 16, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Down The Jersey Shore (Paperback)
A surprisingly enjoyable history of the New Jersey Shore. An easy read that is worth picking up over and over. One point: the author says that the Twin Lights at Navesink Highlands sit on the highest point on the eastern seaboard. That's accuarte only for NJ seaboard; Staten Island NY is the highest point on the Atlantic, eastern seaboard -- from my history. Regardless, read this book; it's a joy.
