The Last Great American Blue-Collar Carnival Town

Looking at some highlights from the 1994 documentary on Wildwood, NJ by Carol Cassidy and Ruth Leitman, I am reminded of some of the stereotypes of Jersey folks. But as a lifelong Jersey person, I also know these stereotypes are here. It's just not all of us.

"Wildwood N.J." is an interesting look at that Jersey shore town that has a culture that differs from some of the other shore towns. It has been called "the last great American blue-collar carnival town."

Even the top website in a search has a carny feel to it - all colors and overly busy and noisy.  (The official site is more the usual municipal boring.)
