Photographer's Note

The Wildwoods are a group of five municipalities in Cape May County, New Jersey, all of which are situated on the Island of Five Mile Beach, a barrier island facing the Atlantic Ocean. These Jersey Shore communities have relatively small year-round populations and swell significantly during the summer with vacationers. While each community has its own independent government, and the five municipalities have no shared governance (other than Cape May County), the term is often used to refer collectively to the area.

The five communities (from south to north) are: Diamond Beach (2000 Census population of 218, a place in Lower Township), Wildwood Crest (3,980), Wildwood (5,436), West Wildwood (448), North Wildwood (4,935).

Installed in 2008, the letters spelling Wildwoods sit behind large, concrete beach balls in the front of the boardwalk close to its southern end. It has become one of the beach town's most recognizable images, and is often the focus of many tourism photos. I decided to cut off the last s when I took this photo because we refer to the place as Wildwood. A complete, head-on view of the sign is provided in the workshop.
