Since Hurricane Sandy caused massive destruction to the Ortley Beach amusement center, the sidewalk has been a graveyard for destroyed arcade machines.
Barnacle Bill's arcade and miniature golf course has been an Ortley Beach landmark for decades. During Hurricane Sandy, both the arcade and golf course suffered significant damage. During the cleanup of the arcade, dozens of arcade cabinets, pinball machines, and crane games, all of them destroyed by flooding ocean water, were pulled out to the sidewalk creating a video game graveyard of sorts. Though the destroyed machines account for about 30 years of collecting, Bill's owner Bill Petruzel said, Barnacle Bill's will be rebuilt, hopefully by this summer.
