These photos are a brief tribute to a fun city in its off-season. They were taken in September, 2001, when most of the fun-seekers were gone, but the surreal statues and amusement parks lingered. In that month it was peaceful, sun-washed, and delightful. Yes, maybe a bit sad because summer was over.... but still filed with bright sights, with some open pizza parlors and amusement shops, with superb fudge available. I like to slice it and share it sparingly. In summer, Wildwood is unrivalled on the Jersey shore for fast, big rides. The beaches are spacious, too!
