The “Jersey Shore House” Remains

At a recent trip to Seaside Heights, I noticed that the shore house that had housed “The Jersey Shore” cast (when MTV was still filming) was selling tours to help Danny, the homeowner, who had suffered extensive property damage during Hurricane Sandy. The actual Jersey Shore house wasn’t impacted too badly, but the same cannot be said about The Shore Store and Danny’s other properties. As a person who spent most of her childhood Summers on the Seaside Heights boardwalk, I wanted to help Danny in some way. So I paid the $20 bucks (for 2 tickets) and toured the property. It was eerie to say the least, with the Hurricane Sandy shadow hanging overhead and the obvious empty feeling without the cast running carelessly through, but it resembled any other Jersey Shore house that vacationers would rent. It made me realize this house wasn’t just the playground of those lucky kids that found fame when MTV casted them, but a place that represents what Jersey Shore Summer’s are about – renting a home where the walls are made out of dark wood, the rooms have twin bunk beds, and the couches aren’t really comfortable. Still, you enjoy it because now you have a temporary home-base to grill, eat, shower, and chill before/after coming back from the beach, boardwalk or nearby bars. Or Barnacle Bills…which is completely down since Sandy. </3 Either way, to be in the kitchen where the Jersey Shore kids broke bread, broke faces, and broke hearts, and realize that those moments broadcasted on television are what brought my money and tons of others to this cheesy tour that will hopefully help Danny in some way, it truly makes you feel as though you’re in a home with immense significance. #restoretheshore
