Overview

The three New Jersey beach resorts known as The Wildwoods are famous for their unique concentration of the architectural style known as Doo Wop. The style survives in the resorts' motels, built between 1955 and 1970, and comes in a variety of forms: Modern, with jet-age glass walls; Vroom!, with thrusting pointed features; and Polynesian Pop, with thatched roofs and tiki torches. This fun, full-color chronicle describes the motels' special features--from glorious neon signs to ubiquitous plastic palm trees--and covers more recent Neo-Doo Wop buildings.
