1926: ORTLEY BEACH REAL ESTATE!


Hurry up, shore lovers, at these prices these lots won't last long! Can you imagine purchasing real estate back in the 1920's and then take a mental trip up to the 21st century and the year 2011 and envision paying such incredibly low prices?

HI TOM.....I CAN'T HELP THINKING ABOUT THE SHORE IN THE 1920'S. THE ONLY PAVED ROAD WE TOOK WAS TO AS BURY PARK. FOR SOME REASON MY FATHER PREFERRED BELMAR. IT WAS A DIRT ROAD AND WE DROVE WITH THE WINDOWS UP. MY FATHER LOVED TO WATCH THE COMMERCIAL FISHERMAN BRING IN THE FISH AT BELMAR. THERE WASN'T A THING ON THE BOARDWALK, AND YOU HAD TO HOLD ON TO ROPES IN THE OCEAN OR GET SWEPT OUT TO SEA. AS A KID I THOUGHT THE PLACE WAS VERY BORING. REGARDS.

Hi Tom, My parents owned a home on 4 7th Ave from the 60s into the 80s. I spent many days at Ortley Beach. Many memories. Noel Goeke

My son and his wife owned a sweet little bungalow on 4th a block from the ocean for several years. Ortley is a Mecca for people from around East Hanover. So many great memories as each grandchild was born and introduced to the joys of the Jersey Shore. They got interested in boats and still keep one on the other side of bay. As the boys got older they had their own interests in Morris County and my son sold the place. Unfortunately not at the ridiculously high prices they are going for now. They still rent a beautiful place there each year.

Hi Tom: My family used to rent a house right on the beach at Beach Haven in the late 40's. The house was on stilts and was the greatest place. Even when we no longer did that, we used to drive to the shore and I can remember seeing the start of the scrub pines and sand and know that we were almost there. Later on, my father and I drove to the shore to surf fish. He would light his Coleman lantern and I went up the beach to cast never letting the lantern's glow out of my sight. Regards.
