What's in the mysterious crate on the Port Charles waterfront, marked "Atlantic City Tumble Dry"? And what will happen to renegade rookie policeman Frisco Jones and his new wife, Felicia, unjustly accused of filching $45,000 and a fur coat? Will they be done in by the sinister septuagenarian hit woman, Edna Hit? "As we say on the show, tune in next time," said Jerry Balme, coordinating producer of "General Hospital" (weekdays at 3 p.m. on Channel 6), the outrageous Los Angeles-based television soap opera, which taped a series of scenes on the Boardwalk here yesterday.

As an adult, I find the expression trite now. But as a child, I thought it a truly magical destination. It was the boardwalk in Wildwood - the only place I ever wanted to be. Its path was infinite, impossible to conquer in a single night from Sportland to Fun Pier. To this day, I can still smell the creosote that permeated the air on a humid August night. I can recall walking with my parents, wondering where all those rides, lights and arcades had come from. Who put them there, and why?

The officially appointed screening panel convened at 9 a.m. Friday for a 3 1/2-hour meeting inside the Red Lips Saloon in TropWorld Casino & Entertainment Resort at Brighton and the Boardwalk - up in the second-floor, indoor "Tivoli Pier," which is past the Ferris-wheel marquee and the sand- castle roller coaster and the "Knockdown" and "Three-in-Line" pitch- ball booths, and beyond the skee-ball booth as well as the "Jersey Derby" and "Milk Cans"...

To Anthony Catanoso, it has never been a question of whether there should be an amusement park on the Steel Pier, but how he was going to sustain it. "I tell people that I just prepared for the eighth anniversary of our last year," said Catanoso, the president of Atlantic Amusements, which, with the help of the Trump Organization, revived the rides on Atlantic City's most famous pier 14 years ago. Last year, though, the Trump Organization, which...

WILDWOOD - There have been many odd incarnations for this Jersey Shore beach town. And nearly all of them seem to have set this place apart as a somewhat eccentric and perhaps even peculiar place compared with other Jersey resorts. This, after all, is where a city councilman once undertook a moonlit dismantlement of the boardwalk and where a collection of ticky-tacky 1950s motels has evolved into a treasured historical architectural style. Wildwood by one claim could be the birthplace of rock and roll.

Nine businesses were destroyed and fifteen people suffered minor injuries when a stubborn fire erupted before dawn along the boardwalk yesterday, causing an estimated $2.5 million in damage. More than 100 firefighters from several Cape May County communities battled the blaze in the 3900 block of the boardwalk for more than six hours before bringing it under control about 10:15 a.m. The boardwalk itself did not appear to be damaged. The fire occurred in one of the last rows of old wood-frame buildings on the boardwalk.

It's deja vu all over again on the Jersey Shore, where Wildwood officials are trying to finish a $3.5 million boardwalk renovation as the calendar marches briskly toward spring. In an uncanny coincidence, the resort finds itself in a predicament involving a boardwalk, a deadline, and a controversial rain-forest hardwood, just as Ocean City - its Cape May County neighbor 25 miles north - did this time last year. On one side of a gaping hole in his town's beloved promenade is Wildwood's sweating mayor, pondering what will become of 2 1/2 blocks of the boardwalk's most heavily trafficked section.

The arson unit of the Atlantic City Fire Department yesterday examined the debris of a fire that ravaged the Boardwalk entrance to the Steeplechase Pier, destroying six vacant buildings and a fast-food restaurant. "We're going through the debris, piece by piece, and so far we haven't uncovered anything suspicious," said William Glenn, deputy fire chief. On Saturday, 125 firefighters barricaded the Boardwalk and battled the fire for more than seven hours before it was brought under control.

Bob Pantalena's feet know the Boardwalk. They know it as something far different from the honky-tonk piers, Miss America parades and saltwater taffy shops that make up its celebrated history. They know the Boardwalk close up. Intimately. In more than 10 years of running, Pantalena's feet have pounded on pine from the South, jarrah from Australian eucalyptus trees and, more recently, betha bara from the jungles of Brazil. If you ask Pantalena, director of the Boardwalk Runners St. Patrick's Day Run, his feet will go with the betha bara any day. "It's a gigantic improvement," he said.

This is the tale of one single mom, two kids and three Jersey boardwalks. Our trio of thrill-seekers (me, my daughter, Katie, 13, and son, Ryan, 10) set out to determine which resort's boardwalk had more bang for the buck: Wildwood, North Wildwood or Ocean City. The catch was that we could spend no more than $75, or two hours, in any one resort. First, a confession. As un-American as it may sound, I hate boardwalks. Actually, I like the boardwalk because it's next to the ocean.
