Ocean Grove Boardwalk Getting Half-Million-Dollar Upgrade
Did you know that Woody Allen filmed parts of "Stardust Memories" in Ocean Grove? The movie was also filmed around Asbury Park, Belmar, Deal, Hoboken, and Neptune City.
There is a shot of Woody walking down a boardwalk, and in the background you can see the famous lighted cross atop the Grand Auditorium.
The boardwalk took severe damage during Superstorm Sandy, and has been upgraded in sections. The final section awaiting repairs is on the southern side, and the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association announced it would spend nearly half a million dollars to replace 600 linear feet of the old wooden boardwalk.
During construction, parking will be banned between Broadway and Embury Streets along the east side of Ocean Avenue until the estimated project completion in May.
