I had read about remnants of a hotel on the side of Rt. 71 in Sea Girt, next to Wreck Pond. I was geocaching in the area and decided to stray from my itinerary a bit and see if I could find them. Luckily, they were right next to where I was supposed to be. I was upset to see there was nothing of the actual building left; there was a large ditch instead. We did find the driveway, lamp posts, steps, and walkway though, all in pretty good shape. Behind the ditch we found some pipes coming out of the ground.
Another geocacher (thanks Fishingdude) told us the place was called the Jimmy Byrne’s Sea Girt Inn and was also a bar. The place was sold and demolished somewhere around ’96 or ’97 because it was a fire hazard. Neither he or I could dig up any more information. I’m curious to see what the place used to look like.
Overall there wasn’t that much to see, but it was an easy find and still worth checking out.
