  • Doo-Wop Hotels: Taking Tacky to New Heights
    car Wildwood kind of fulfilled that need You just parked your car right in front of your unit Outlandish looking bearing exotic names like Shalimar or Waikiki the new motels offered fantasy and escapism to vacationing families who after a generation of economic hardship and war finally had the means for a little harmless indulgence The Wildwood motels and their signs were sort of a smaller version of what Vegas did in the 1960s says George E Thomas an architectural historian at Civicvisions in Philadelphia and co director of the Critical Conservation Program at Harvard University s Graduate School of Design The builders were looking over their shoulder to Vegas and elsewhere The Morey family found its muse in Miami Beach Resort hotels like the opulent Fontainebleau designed by Morris Lapidus caught the senior Morey s eye and became his inspiration for motels like the Fantasy built in 1957 and the Satellite in 1959 He believed in show not in formal sophisticated architecture says Jack Morey My dad had no idea who Morris Lapidus was but he d come home and try to Wildwoodize that style He d take something far away and figure out a way to give birth to it here in Wildwood And he did that throughout his life Will Morey Sr died in 1998 That architecture had energy says Thomas All that other serious high modern architecture kind of lost the point of being modern But these guys in Wildwood were out there just sort of doing what they thought they saw These were small time builders creating this fantastic place Thomas says The intent was to be new original fresh modern Jet airplanes and spaceships and all that stuff were all captured in it The motels lured family vacationers originally from Philadelphia and South Jersey later from North Jersey and beyond summer after summer Daniel MacElrevey a former owner of the Granada Resort Motel in Wildwood Crest which opened in 1968 remembers a family who stayed every summer in room 106 When their child grew up they came with kids of their own and stayed in room 105 When those kids grew up they came too staying in room 104 Always the last week of June those three rooms MacElrevey says They would say Will I have my rooms again next year It was their place at the Shore Today MacElrevey heads the Doo Wop Preservation League a nonprofit formed in 1997 with the Moreys and others to promote preservation of the Wildwoods mid century treasures MacElrevey eventually sold the Granada to a buyer who promised to preserve the building turning down a developer who offered more money It s not just the buildings MacElrevey says In my mind more is the multi generation aspect For the Wildwoods today doo wop is more than a trip down memory lane Doo wop is a brand complete with themed festivals and events that celebrate epochal moments like Chubby Checker s debut performance of The Twist in July
