About this title

Synopsis:

The three New Jersey beach resorts known collectively as The Wildwoods have recently been the subject of widespread notice for their unique concentration of mid-century commercial architecture. Known in The Wildwoods as Doo Wop, the style is mostly represented in the resorts' surviving 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, colorful book recounts the stories of the motels, describes their special features--from glorious neon signs to ubiquitous plastic palm trees--and covers the recent Neo-Doo Wop buildings that have risen in the wake of Doo Wop preservation.

About the Author:

Kirk Hastings lives in Somers Point, New Jersey, where he works as a graphic designer and freelance writer. He grew up in Wildwood Crest, near the large Doo Wop motel district, and is the president of the Wildwood Crest Historical Society and an associate board member of the Doo Wop Preservation League.

Shipping Terms:

PLEASE NOTE FOR SHIPMENTS TO DESTINATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Because we ship by trackable means (UPS to Canada, Global Express Mail through the U.S. Postal Service to all other countries) and because the vast majority of our books far exceed the 2.2-pound reference weight used in the "Shipping Rates" chart, shipping to addresses outside the United States can be extremely expensive. (As examples, the postage cost for a 6-pound parcel is $41.75 to Great Britain, $34.95 to France and $41.20 to Germany.) We will always contact you with the exact shipping charge before sending your international order so you may decide whether to confirm or cancel the order. FOR SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: We ship by United Parcel Service (which does not deliver to post office boxes) at a charge of $10.00 for the first book and $3.00 for each additional book on the same order. We will provide you with the UPS tracking number for your order. Expedited shipping (UPS Next-Day or Second-Day Air) is available to most addresses in the continental United States. The cost of these services is dependent on the weight of the shipment, but we will not exceed the charge of $15.00 for the first book and $9.00 for each additional book without prior confirmation from you. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.
