The Judge's shack is a former fishing shanty built around 1911. Sitting a few hundred feet from the Atlantic, it was purchased and remodeled by Judge Richard Hartshorne in 1942. The shack overlooks part of a 10-mile-long beach that is NJ''s last major stretch of undeveloped coastline. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy took out the primary dune that was in front of it, and it may not last much longer. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks Bob - glad you liked it! I believe the Judge's Shack is the last of the old time shanties.

Thanks merrytexan - I appreciate your comment! It was as nice a day as you can ask for in November, and thankfully the crazy wind died down.

Thanks Sylvia - I'm glad you liked it. I first read about the Judge's shack a little earlier this year, and wanted to get down to Island Beach State Park as I've never been there before. The beaches are unlike anything else in NJ - lots of dunes, trees and sand leading up to the relatively narrow strip of beach.
