Nick(left with Jack-Buster Smith) and father Bob Dionisio are seen preparing to open a new boardwalk business.

See “Nick’s Clam Bar”: Born with the name Nicholas Dionisio, it is hard to avoid a career owning a clam bar along the boardwalk. Nick Dionisio has now opened Park Seafood at Stockton Avenue along the boardwalk in Seaside Park. Nick’s grandfather, also named Nick, owned the landmark Nick’s Clam Bar at Sherman Avenue and The Boardwalk in Seaside Heights for decades. Although Nick’s Clam Bar was a choice for the name, young Nick decided to call the business Park Seafood. Proud parents Bob and Marsha Dionisio have been by Nick’s side during the months of planning it took to refurbish the location, which is right outside of the boardwalk facing doors of the landmark Sawmill. Nick opened the location Thursday March 27th.

March 30, 2008

Landmark music stand, “Union Jack’s” is history along the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. The location is seen recently being converted to a basketball stand.

‘Union Jack’ now lowered in Seaside Heights: The Union Jack will no longer be flying on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. The landmark music stand Union Jacks, which had stood since along the promenade near Dupont Avenue and The Boardwalk since 1968 has now closed. Union Jack’s owner Earl Livingston decided to give up the business, citing a change in the recording industry and things such as digital music, Ipods, and so on. Union Jack’s was once one of 24 record stands on the boardwalk, and was the last remaining. The old Union Jack’s will now be a basketball stand operated by ‘Big Hearted John’ Sundermann and Eric Faranda. .
