For generations, visitors to Long Beach Island NJ have passed by a small building off the eastbound side of Route 72. This small building, known as “The Shack” has become synonymous with the entrance to LBI and for many people signals the start of their summer vacation. Sadly, now it is gone forever.
History of the Shack
