Long Description:
This NJ Geodetetic Survey disk was discovered while on a nighttime stroll along Beach Avenue. Many of these old disks dating back to the 1930s have made it into the NGS database in nearby Wildwood - however, as of this date, none from Cape May are in the database.

This disk is located in the W quadrant of the T intersection of Beach Avenue (running ENE-WSW) & Pittsburgh Avenue (running NNW). The disk is about 4" N of the N edge of the 'E-W' sidewalk & about 3" E of the 'N-S' sidewalk.

The Pier House Restaurant is located on this corner.
