Abandoned

Yeah, so, turns out you're not supposed to do this. Whoops. Don't play on rotting porches, kids.

Starting in 1916, the local summer visitors of Glenside Park/Feltville started getting CARS, so they could go FAR during the summer—like to the Jersey Shore! (Side note: those—the summer visitors from New York or north Jersey, especially obnoxious ones—are what native Jersey Shore-ites call “bennies” or “shoobies.”)

And thus Glenside Park/Feltville went through a second bout of desertion.
