“Looking Back” at Ocean Grove, New Jersey. As seen from the OG fishing pier. May 8, 2008. Paul Goldfinger photo ©. Please do not reproduce.  Click left for large view.


This image is permanently exhibited on Blogfinger in the “about” section above. It appeared in Maine Ahead, a magazine which featured it in their January 2011 anniversary collectors edition. It is no longer possible to re-create this view — at least until they rebuild the pier.

Note that this special uncropped commemorative “print” of it includes a piece of the OG fishing pier in the lower left hand corner.

Here’s Bruce Springsteen;  a musical hero here at the Jersey Shore. He appeared in the 12/12/12 benefit concert in NYC  with the E Street Band — raising money for the hurricane victims. Below is a live recording of “Girls in Their Summer Clothes” — from the 2008 album “Magic.”

This song reminds me of the shore — you can almost smell the surf and see the girls walking on the boardwalk and the fishing pier.

“And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Passing by.”
