Lucy the Margate Elephant | Margate City, New Jersey
Snookie’s main rival for Most Beautiful Girl In All of New Jersey is Lucy, a wooden¬†elephant built in 1881 that stands 65 feet tall, weighs 90 tons, and resides in the bucolic suburbs of Atlantic City. It costs adults $6 and children $3 to stand on Lucy’s back and take photos. Snookie, however, charges only half that much.
