Mighty Joe


Anyone driving on Route 206 in Shamong has surely seen the gorilla in the parking lot of Mighty Joe’s, a gas station and convenience store.  Formerly found along the Wildwood boardwalk and more recently serving as a decoration at a go-kart track, the gorilla, now known as Mighty Joe, has since been fixed up and moved to the side of Route 206 as an homage to the owner’s deceased son, also named Joe.


The sign says it all.

  1. Facebook memories, 9 years ago. I miss this stuff! I’m surprised you didn’t get any rear-end photos, where you could see the cut=outs for the slides that were sliced into poor Joe.
