Seaside Heights, which served as the backdrop to MTV’s Jersey Shore for four seasons has been lost in a ravaging fire in the coastal city.
The fire began in an ice cream shop the afternoon of Sept. 12, and quickly spread to consume several blocks and destroy many businesses.
The coastline town and boardwalk, which was recently rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy, was home to the FunTown Amusement Pier and the Shore Store, where the castmates worked on their reality show.
Jersey Shore stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Deena Cortese, and Angelina Pivarnick have taken to Twitter to express their feelings of loss over their beloved coastline town, distress to those affected and gratitude to the firefighters who served.
