They aren't just messing with the environment on this one. They're messing with history, and we ain't gonna let 'em.
The Jersey Shore Chapter held a rally with 200 people in attendance at a church in Long Branch to save the Takanassee Beach Club.
They got great press in statewide and local papers and they put up a great video on YouTube.
This historic property is slated to be turned into condos pending a coastal development from the NJ DEP. The property has three buildings that were US Lifesaving Service stations. The US Lifesaving Service was the forerunner of the modern Coast Guard.
