Bruce Springsteen films a video in OG,  by Andrew Meyer © 2007.  Special to Blogfinger.

Bruce Springsteen made this song famous and he made a music video shot, 2007,  partially in Ocean Grove.  Andrew Meyer, a BF reader, was there taking pictures.

Andrew says, “I have seen the music video but not recently and some parts of it are definitely from OG.    I believe that besides the scenes with him singing there are beach scenes with a juke box and pinball machine as well as the fishing pier that are from OG.    Most of the filming was done on the beach just north of the pier with some additional scenes just south of the pier.”

Below is a link to the video:.    As it says in the link “Shot on a cold winter’s day, we froze!” is very true, it was actually the Friday before Thanksgiving 2007 and a very cold day.

Summer fashions in Ocean Grove, 2017:  In case you didn’t notice, this was the summer of gravity-defying short shorts. The fashion caught on like wildfire and also probably got caught elsewhere  as well.  But it actually first appeared two summers ago when we first reported on it.

Who knew that such shorts were physically possible?  As a student of human anatomy, I found it difficult to explain, but no more difficult than jeans worn halfway down a guy’s backside, which manage never to fall down.

Butt, it also was the summer for thong bathing suits, rarely seen in the Grove, but more common over in Asbury or a quick jog south to Belmar.

However  the strangest women’s fashion look are the black spandex pants that rarely make it down to the ankle, but they are so revealing, that despite covering all critical parts, they do leave nothing to the imagination as they show every curve.  Why do that, when a bit of mystery is always more tantalizing?  It seems to be a case of follow the leaders and leave nothing to the imagination. What’s next?

The funny thing is that men’s summer clothes don’t change much.  But they are coming back for a new look this winter with hoodies that are worn over the head inside, such as walking around Wegmans.

August 2014. A girl in her summer clothes. Central Park, Upper East Side. Paul Goldfinger photo ©  Click to see her tug on her dress. Was she primping for the photographer? Is she with the others, and what does the little smile mean?  Ask Paul McCartney—he wrote the song and included the piccolo.


“Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
Penny Lane.”
