This is the old Web-site for the "Dillville" Tent City of Lakewood, NJ. Our camp was bulldozed by the Lakewood Township government in June 2014! This Web-site is preserved for historical reasons.
The Asbury Park Press (APP) is a daily newspaper in Monmouth and Ocean counties. It is owned by Gannett Company, Inc.
This publication has covered Tent City on the following occasions:
An APP reporter (thought to be sympathetic to Tent City) erroneously reported in mid-March 2013 that the camp would "close" on May 3rd. (At hearing on March 15th, the Ocean County Superior Court judge set the following hearing date for May 3rd.)
To our knowledge, APP has still not corrected that serious error, which contributed to a steep decline in donations, and created a general impression among many sympathizers that the situation at Tent City had been resolved.
