Wildwood’s a quirky place, the kind of shore town that inspires a love-it or hate-it reaction.
No matter what side of the argument you claim, you’ve got to know that Wildwood is not the most upscale town at the Jersey shore (any place that thrives on prom weekend or senior week parties is never going to appeal to the Land Rover crowd). But that didn’t stop investors from believing the gentrification hype, hence the big real estate boom and bust around town (want a cheap Wildwood property? Buy now, and ignore your neighbors).
Red Sky, a wonderful shore restaurant, also bit the bait and got pulled under. They just closed their Wildwood location.
We won’t be surprised if Juan Pablo’s is next. When we walked by the restaurant on Memorial Day Weekend, it looked just like Red Sky: out of place.
When will Wildwood catch up? Right about the same time Camden does: exactly never.
