News from Around the South Jersey Shore

Looks like Wildwood's getting a new playground. If you haven't had the chance to check out the area for which it's planned, which is by the newish Wildwoods Convention Center, I recommend you check it out -- the Doo Wop Experience, which is across the street from the convention center, is an absolute must do.

It's birding season in Cape May. Here's someone's list of what she saw, and a nifty blog for beginning birders. I just reviewed Of a Feather: A Brief History of American Birding by Scott Weidensaul on my other blog, and he writes that "Cape May...may be the single best place in North American -- perhaps the world -- for birding." So enjoy, birders (and, um, buy my book for next fall so you know the best places to go. Yes, shameless plug, I know...)

More on the sitcom that is Atlantic City government.

Don't ever try to steal from a casino -- as this guy learned.

Congrats to the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, which is one of seven recipients of the Historical Commission Awards, which are given out by the state of NJ.

Here's a nice story on the latest exhibit at the Emlen Physick Estate. If you've never been to the Emlen Physick Estate, I urge you to stop there on your next Cape May trip. Not only is the building interesting, but the guides also give you a peek into how much work went into saving the great Victorian buildings that are still over town today.

a profile of Jerry Seinfeld -- it opens in Atlantic City. Nice local flavor with shout outs to Tastykakes and the White House Sub Shop.

What I'm listening to: Preston & Steve on 93.3 WMMR
