Ballerina Clown

The "Clown With a Dress" (Rose and Main St.) is a sculpture by artist Jonathan Borofsky entitled "Ballerina Clown." It's actually a ballerina in a clown mask and, quite frankly, it scares the bejesus out of me.

Clown in a Dress

In this funky town, with its infamous boardwalk and crazy folk, two great oddities for club members include the clown with a dress (corner of Rose and Main St above the Koo Koo Roo restaurant) and the binocular building (1 1/2 blocks south on Main from Rose).
