|The Innkeepers of Cape May, New Jersey, have kindly extended
their facilities on a complimentary basis to the Fire Fighters of New York
City for much needed relief and relaxation. This generosity is a token
of appreciation for the incredible sacrifice and continual perseverance
in rescue and recovery efforts. A typical stay would be 3 days and two
nights, weekdays only.
Unfortunately, because of requests to extend this program
and lack of funding, for the time being, a $50 fee will be required to
cover administrative costs, while we work on developing alternatives. We
are sorry about this inconvenience, and thank you for bearing with us.
Cape May is widely renowned as:
A National Historic city, landmarked for the splendor of
its 600 preserved Victorian era houses and hotels, to provide a healthful,
stress-free, and beautifully relaxing environment.
One of the “100 Best Small Art Towns,” according to
John Villani’s book of the same title.
The only location twice designated “America’s Prettiest Painted
Place” (1928 and 2000) by Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute with Better
Homes and Gardens and Architecture Magazines.
The Restaurant Capital of New Jersey (New York Times, New
Jersey Monthly, New Jersey on Line, and many others), with an amazing variety
of five-star restaurants..
Birding Migration Capital of N. America (Roger Tory Peterson’s
Dozen Birding Hotspots, a Nature Conservancy Top Ten.)
One of Largest U.S. Fishing Ports, including deep-sea sport
and surf fishing, and whale watching.
Among Top Ten Beaches in the United States (Beach Week, The
Traffic Channel, March 2000).
And, a must-not-miss: the world famous Cape
