Photos: Destruction on the New Jersey shore and amusement piers caused by Hurricane Sandy

Posted Friday, November 2, 2012 10:14 AM | Contributed by Jeff

The well-known seaside town and historic boardwalk of Seaside Heights - made famous the world over by MTV's Jersey Shore - has been almost totally wiped out by Hurricane Sandy. The waterfront rides on Casino Pier are gone. A roller coaster bobs lazily in the waves. Sand, leaves and debris choke roads previously lined with houses that now rest on their sides.

See the photos from The Daily Mail.

The Star Jet rollercoaster is on the current cover of "People" magazine. It is certainly "the definitive/iconic image" of the power and devastation of Sandy. I'm impressed that the Miler coaster basically stayed in one piece when the pier washed out from under it.
