Kean University
The 1936 occupation of the State House in Trenton is the topic of this episode of "It Happened Here: New Jersey." The depression was in its seventh year, and things got even worse when relief efforts were suspended on April 15, 1936 due to lack of funds. Protesters took over the state house for eight days in an early "occupy" movement.

"It Happened Here: New Jersey" is a production of Kean University, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission. The series is narrated by Willie Geist. PCK Media is serving as producer of the series. For more information about this and other activities planned for New Jersey's 350th Anniversary, visit www.officialnj350.com.

We look at one of the more kid-friendly areas on the island, from Thundering Surf Water Park to the Fantasy Island amusement park and arcade. Parks, beaches, and marinas are seen, as well.

On the waterfront, you can catch a glimpse of the hotels/motels and restaurants in the area. Come back soon to see more amazing NJ shore videos.
