White Horse Down

The iconic white horse, which stood atop a tall tower has fallen down. The only remainder of the White Horse Pike Drive in has found its demise after a brief storm hit New Jersey last night.
For the past several days and I have been checking its direction to see if the horse spun/turned. There had been a comment on the blog asking about its movement. So tonight, on our way home, I asked Dan to tell me its direction. His response: it’s not there.

Please excuse the bad quality of pictures, I did not anticipate needing to take photos tonight. His rear legs are not attached anymore… that is the piece on the left side.  He is currently next to the tower,  in the Petsmart parking lot. So very sad….

7/26/14 UPDATE: The horse was taken down by crane. There was an article in the Courier Post today and a video on Facebook. Reason still unknown, but speculation lies in the possibility of harm with the rear legs falling.

      1. On a similar note…In Catskill, NY (where I was doing a shoot) there is another drive-In to add to your list if you don’t already have this one…I have to go where the abandoned is 🙂

      2. Not to be all “shameless plug” here but I just finished listing all of the currently open Drive In movie theatres on RetroRoadmap.com as an easy way to see where they all are. If you’re interested in finding where some closed ones used to be, Drive-Ins.com is a good place to start.

        Hope that helps!
