Description by OLDIES.com:

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, such as Modern with jet-age glass walls, Vroom! with thrusting pointed features, and Polynesian Pop with thatched roofs and tiki torches. This fun, colourful book recounts the stories of the motels, describes their special features - from the ubiquitous plastic palm trees to the glorious neon signs that identify them - and covers the recent Neo-Doo Wop buildings that have arisen in the wake of Doo Wop preservation.

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.
