Yesterday morning (Monday, January 14th), the residents of Bradley Beach were honored with a visit from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who came to the shore town to praise the Bradley Beach dune system, which helped keep destruction from Hurricane Sandy to a minimum. The mile stretch of dunes is now being rebuilt with discarded Christmas trees.

Mayor Gary Engelstad, who was on hand to welcome Christie, extended an invitation to the governor to take part in Bradley Beach's Memorial Day celebrations in May. Christie politely accepted.
