Boardwalk car chase, now in video

While news vans were busy filming the Revel opening at the other end of th Boardwalk, a Staten Island yahoo was leading police on a high speed car chase on the Boardwalk. Luckily, surveillance cameras were on hand to give us the video. H/T Brian P. Hickey, via Ted Greenberg at Channel 10.

Boardwalk car chase, now in video


So it's been a pretty wild week, inside the newsroom and out, uptown on the Boardwalk and down. On Monday, you may recall, news crews descended on the Boardwalk near the Inlet to film all the people coming to see the new Revel casino. Meanwhile, the real news was at the other end of the Boardwalk, where a Staten Island man led police on a high speed chase before heading for the Expressway, where, law abiding citizen that he was, he stopped to pay the toll and was apprehended. The police 911 audio is here and is pretty entertaining. Luckily nobody was hurt. Luckily, there were surveillance cameras which captured the fun time on the Boardwalk for all to see. If I had stuck to my original plan to ride my bike to Revel, I myself might have stumbled upon this wacky police chase on my way home. Then again, I might have gotten run over by a car on the Boardwalk, no easy feat. H/T Brian P. Hickey, via Ted Greenberg at Channel 10/NBC News.

Inquirer staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg has covered Philly police, city neighborhoods, Ed Rendell as mayor, the Jersey shore, Atlantic City, Miss America and the psychology of Eagles fans. She moved to Ventnor on July 3, 1995, which makes her a local, but not really.

Inquirer Staff Writer Jacqueline L. Urgo has spent every summer of her life at the Jersey Shore, and has lived there year-round for nearly 30 years, even fulfilling one of her bucket list dreams by once living in a house by the sea.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
