Hurricane Sandy destroyed Belmar’s entire boardwalk. Contractors drove the very first boardwalk piling into the sand this morning. Gov. Chris Christie called it one of great first moments in the rebuilding of the state and the Jersey Shore.
“We’re ready to turn the corner now to restoring it and that’s an extraordinary, extraordinary job that was done by your mayor and council and the people here. Belmar is leading the way to recovery,” Christie said.
