La Vita Motel – Wildwood Crest

Early 1970s postcard of the La Vita Motel, Wildwood Crest, NJ

This is an early 70’s postcard from the La Vita Motel, 8400 Atlantic Avenue in Wildwood Crest. We stayed there every summer from 1972 through the early 1980’s. At night, the sign was neon pink and the motel was lit with blue and red lights. Next door was the Sands Motel.  In the early years of our stay, there was a vacant lot across the street (where I used to fly kites), so the motel had an ocean view. Later, three (I think) motels were built there, so our great view was gone. The owners, Ann and Charlie Weymiller and their sons, Bill and Gary were super nice people, so we always enjoyed our visits.

With only 33 rooms, La Vita had much more of a family feel than the larger motels in the neighborhood. Many guests, like us, returned year after year.

La Vita went “condo” several years ago. The building was painted a dreadfully boring tan color and many of the cool architectural features were removed. The project went bust though — La Vita has been sitting vacant for the last 3 years.

NJN Documentary Our Vanishing Past – Wildwood

This is an excerpt from NJN’s documentary OUR VANISHING PAST. The documentary features more than 30 historic places throughout New Jersey, from crumbling ruins in forgotten towns to spectacular restorations in major cities. The documentary also looks at successful preservation efforts, from grassroots citizens groups to innovative developers. Official Website: www.njn.net Along the coast in Wildwood, a different kind of teardown has invaded the shore. At risk is the largest collection of mid-20th century resort architecture in the country. In the 1950s and 60s, Wildwood was a major destination for newly mobile families. The construction of the Garden State Parkway and cars built for cruising made it easy for vacationers to reach this seaside resort. The popular music of the era inspired the name for the eye-catching style of architecture in Wildwood referred to as Doo Wop. Fun, imaginative and surprising, these family owned motels attracted attention with dazzling neon, Miami Beach inspired designs and popular themes of the 50s and 60s. Many people are surprised to learn that the Doo Wop motels are historic. A great number of these places are more than 50 years old and are examples of the recent past. The fact that so many Doo Wop motels are in Wildwood adds to the significance of the collection. As each one falls, it has a direct impact on those that remain. More than 100 Doo Wop buildings have faced the wrecking ball. The pressure to demolish these vintage places
