Memorial Day weekend at the Jersey Shore, the start of summer in the land mythologized by Springsteen and caricatured by Snooki, was like the region itself seven months after Sandy: some good, here; some bad, there; hope, almost everywhere.
Hope in Point Pleasant Beach, where the boardwalk was fixed and the deck at Martell’s Tiki Bar was packed.
Hope in Bay Head, where Mueller’s Bakery, more than a century old, briefly reopened in the midst of renovation to sell its cakes and sweet treats on a cash-only basis (the phone lines were still down).
