Urinating Tourists Drive Jersey Shore Town to Seek Curfew

For Dave Cavagnaro, life as a full-time resident along the New Jersey shore came with small headaches he expected: scant weekend parking, congestion and the occasional piece of litter.

Nothing prepared him for what is going on these days in his hometown of Point Pleasant Beach, about 90 minutes by car from Manhattan. Public urination. Beer bottles tossed on his lawn. Screaming crowds pouring onto his street after the 2 a.m. bar closing. He’s even caught a couple having sex against the side of his house.
