Sea Breeze losing population

The once-happenin’ place known as Sea Breeze is perhaps on its last legs. Several homeowners are looking for a buyout from the State. The seawall protecting their homes has not been maintained by the township, county or state. A part of Fairfield Township, Sea Breeze once had an amusement pier and steamboat service to Philadelphia. Like many of the near-death towns on the Cumberland County bay shore, salt hay and oyster farming were likely the sources of income for the majority of the people in the area. Wonder what’s to become of nearby Money Island and Gandy’s Beach?
