A nun enjoys an ice cream cone on a crowded stretch of boardwalk on the New Jersey shore. The Jersey shore has some 28 boardwalks and promenades in the 127 miles (204 kilometers) from Sandy Hook to Cape May.

Wrote one observer: "A shore town without a boardwalk is like an ice cream cone without sprinkles."
