Generations of Whalens in Seaside Heights…

Seaside Heights Boardwalk legend “Lucky” Leo Whalen is seen with son Steve at the Next Door Cafe.

Generations of Whalens in Seaside Heights: Recently our cameras caught up with some very special people having breakfast at the Next Door Cafe in Seaside Heights. Mr. Leo Whalen and son Steve were enjoying a great November day before Leo goes off to Florida. Of course Leo is far better known by the name of his business, Lucky Leo’s, established in 1953 on the Seaside Heights boardwalk. Now retired, Mr. Whalen’s business is now run by his sons. And as far as the future is concerned, there are no shortage of grandsons and granddaughters seen working at the landmark arcade.
