South Amboy, N.J.: ‘Nice and Quaint and Quiet’
As the nation wakes up to the impact of Hurricane Sandy, people are beginning to appreciate the beauty of this place – and there’s a nice and quiet place to be found amid the devastation the storm has caused, according to an article on the site of the Jersey Journal.
The article, titled “How Jersey is coping with Sandy,” says many are choosing to stay at home on Thanksgiving and for Christmas. The focus is on the “quaint and quiet” towns, and people are taking advantage of the opportunities afforded to them by the Jersey Shore.

“This time of the year is always busy,” says another Jersey Shore resident, “but it is nice to have this time to do what you want to do.”
“We have just become accustomed to a really slow time,” says another resident, “and we are used to having our freedom taken from us.”
“I am a realist,” says a resident who lives in Ocean City. “I understand how important the beach and the beachcombers and the vacationers are, but this time of the year is nice.”
