Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 1: "The Sindia" is still at sea

Welcome to the Jersey Shore Fact of the Day series. I hope to do one of these every weekday through Labor Day. We'll see if I can keep up with that.

First up? "The Sindia".

"The Sindia" was a 329-foot, four-masted ship that hit a sandbar in Ocean City in 1901. The ship cracked in two, and parts of it are still off the shore of Ocean City, right around 16th and 17th streets. You can't see the remains because they're covered by sand. But you can eat at the Sindia Restaurant. It'll open for the summer season in May.

(And grammar fact of the day: names of ships are put in quotes. Classes of ships are italicized.)
