Connor Newman. Casino Pier, of Seaside Heights, is selling their historic carousel, most likely in pieces. It was then sent to Casino Pier and has remained there, one of the only rides to survive both Hurricane Sandy, and the Seaside Heights fire. What we want to do is bring this carousel back to its hometown, Burlington. This is a historic piece full of life, spirit, and memories, of many people of both Seaside Heights and Burlington.
It would be a shame to let it dissapear from the world. We need to raise a lot of funds to save the carousel from destruction. Connor Newmann has started a go fund me campaign to save the carousel up now for auction by Seaside Heights. Support him and his efforts to bring the carousel back to where it originated, historic Burlington City, NJ. Please add friends to this group so we can bring the carousel back home. The Casino Pier carousel has, like many storied carousels, an interesting history.
The machine was originally part of a trolley park called Island Beach Park. In the park burned and the fire damaged the carousel. An area resident, Linus Gilbert, rescued and rebuilt the machine. He bought and added carved figures that were not part of the original. This resulted in a carousel with a mixture of animals from a few different revered carvers, some of whom had worked from different carousel manufacturers. The carousel was brought from Burlington to Seaside Heights in It was placed in an open frame building and was still under the care and management of Linus Gilbert.
This first building was the beginnings of what would later become the Casino Arcade and Casino Pier. When the carousel building was first built there was a fishing pier located a short distance away. The pier then had nothing to do with what was soon to become a growing amusement area. This same building is still in place today. The building was made smaller to keep it from blocking Ocean Boulevard, which is the main street paralleling the western side of the boardwalk.
The Casino Pier carousel was almost lost to another disaster — selling off the animals to collectors. The owners of the carousel seriously considered dismantling their machine in the s. The selling off of the animals met strong opposition from an unlikely corner, Dr. Floyd Moreland. He had ridden the carousel as a child and later operated the ride as an employee of the Casino Pier. This clip gives you an idea of what the ride was like. It was a fun family type ride that put a smile on every visitors face.
That's what made working on Casino Pier so much fun! If you could make someone smile and make their day at the shore - you did your job and then some!

Tommy Sellitto. Next To The Love Bugs Who Owned That??.. And What Happened To It??.. Jason Gray. I painted it from memory. I have also provided a photo that I found online of what the castle actually looked like in exact detail. I was not able to fit the entire skull in the painting where patrons exited to the left of the viewer's perspective horns where added to the skull in either the '82, or '83 season-I think.
Also, I did not paint the sky ride which would have been to the right-side of the castle.

You can watch from your chair as captains navigate their recreational boats through the channel in the Seaside Heights Harbor. If you bring binoculars you may even be able to spot egrets and herons on the sedge island just across the bay. And parking is free! As the day winds down I encourage you to experience the sunset from the baywalk at Sunset Beach.
As the sun begins its daily dip behind the sedge island the western sky is often painted in cherry-lemon and sangria colors. Bring your camera or smartphone to capture the view. It can be stunning! Whether you are discovering Seaside Heights for the first time or rediscovering our boardwalk and beaches, dig your toes in the sand and savor the Atlantic breeze. I am confident that our version of beach life will suit you!
