Seaside Heights 2013 Carousel Christmas Ornament
- 4" Round Ornament
- Made in the USA
The History Salvaged Seaside Heights 2013 Carousel Christmas Ornament is a 4" round ornament produced from wood that was salvaged from the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, with permission of the Borough of Seaside Heights, when the boardwalk was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy as she made landfall in New Jersey on October 29, 2012 and decimated the Jersey Shore, Staten Island and beach towns on Long Island.
The Seaside Heights 2013 Carousel Christmas Ornament features the American Flag Horse, one of the Carousel Horses from the recently fire destroyed southern end of the Seaside Heights/Seaside Park Boardwalk. Like the iconic image of the Casino Pier Jet Star that came to represent all the devastation that Superstorm Sandy wreaked on the East Coast, the recent Blaze on the Boardwalk in September 2013 has claimed a portion of the rebuilt Boardwalk as well as the section of the Boardwalk that at least partially survived Sandy.
The Seaside Heights 2013 Carousel Christmas Ornament is the 2nd of our annual Christmas Ornaments reminding us that the work is not done, but also providing joy during the holiday season as we continue to rebuild and recover over the next couple of years.
Our Seaside Heights 2013 Carousel Christmas Ornament can proudly be displayed year after year along with their sister pens, magnets and ornaments to remind us all about the power of Mother Nature and the resilience of those of us who were affected by Sandy but are committed to rebuild, recover and restore.
