My memories of the steel pier are many, but a few that come to mind are going to see Davy Jones in the auditorium with my Grandmother in the late 1960s or early 1970s. I was absolutely positive that is would not be just Davy Jones, but all the Monkees. I walked my Grandmother up to the stage, before the event and pointed out all the instruments the other Monkees would play. The best part was my cousin was also there and he put me on his shoulders to see better. I remember "The Steel Pier Show," which no one mentions anymore. I used to work on the Steel Pier for one summer in 1978. My cousin was my boss and I worked many of the games in the front. It was a great time. - Debbie Alper, Egg Harbor Township
