US7 – Boardwalks (again)
Commenting on my remarks about boardwalks, Robert Pimm recalled the Drifters’ song Under the boardwalk.
In Springsteen’s wonderful 4thof July, Asbury Park (Sandy), which I quoted a couple of posts ago, more goes on under the boardwalk than on it – “laughing ‘neath the boardwalk, with the boss’s daughter”, etc.
The Drifters were from New York, Bruce is from New Jersey.
This old photo (from Santa Cruz California, by Sheila O’Hare and Irene Berry, 2002) shows something that you can go under if you want to be flattened.
So my correspondent Mr R.M. seems to be right – east coast boardwalks are not the same as these on the west coast.
