“Wildwood is a small barrier island at the tip of southern New Jersey. Through an improbable combination of economics, geography, and chance, it contains a national treasure: the highest concentration of mid-century modern hospitality architecture in the United States. A short 3-month tourist season combined with a working-class veneer resulted in Wildwood’s motels remaining virtually unchanged – frozen in time – for over 40 years. But more than half of Wildwood’s motels have been demolished in recent years and for those that remain, the future is in doubt.”
