Weekend viewing: Hurricane Sandy, a documentary
Sea Bright, New Jersey is a narrow barrier island that fronts the Atlantic Ocean. Like much of the northern Monmouth County coastline, it is more of a working-class residential community and not a tourist destination like some other shore towns. But I’ve had occasion to go there at times. There is a single bridge that leads in and out of town. I love re-telling the story of an old friend of mine who used to live there. When she was pregnant with her first child, her (then-)husband took a sonogram photo to a neighborhood bar. Bruce Springsteen happened to be there and autographed it for them.
