Nov 30, 2012 HPC salvages NY and NJ Boardwalk woods The Historic Pen Company has supported clean up following Superstorm Sandy at several resort and beach towns in both New York and New Jersey. In addition to Boardwalk wood that was salvaged during the Atlantic City clean up, HPC has been able to salvage some wood from the Point Pleasant Beach and Belmar Boardwalks in NJ as well as wood from the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk and Staten Island's South Beach Boardwalk. The Historic Pen Company began with a simple goal: the reclamation, salvaging and repurposing of wood and other natural materials from historic sites throughout the United States that would otherwise be discarded and lost to history. HPC is proud to have been able to salvage some small quantities of wood from these Iconic and culturally significant sites. In situations where America's Historic and Iconic places are damaged or destroyed, understandably preservation often takes a back seat to clean up and healing. HPC has made a concerted effort to salvage and secure some of wood that has seen countless millions of children, adults, vacationers and tourists enjoy these boardwalks over the years before it was all carted off to landfills. Over the next months and years, the boardwalks will be rebuilt and enjoyed once more by future millions of people, but HPC will be able to create pens, pencils, ornaments, magnets, bookmarks and more from the boards of a bygone era and will make available product that you can use, collect and pass down for future generations so they can hold in their hands memories that could not be washed away by Sandy. HPC will donate a portion of the proceeds from our Boardwalk Collections to the Sandy Relief Foundation and will continue supporting clean up of the New York Beaches and the Jersey Shore.
