Smiley Face Water Tower

On a week of shore-town summer fun we sought out many water towers, but this smiley-face vessel gave us pictures that seemed a bit... terrifying. Trying to get a good shot of the face, we circled around and looked between houses. We noticed how much the face reminded us of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from "Ghostbusters."

Love all these H2O holders up and down the Jersey shore, a must-see for every visitor.

You mention that the best shot you could get of the Longport Smiley Face water tower was a grainy one from the top of Lucy the Elephant. It is nice that you have the water tower face-on. This picture is close and good quality -- figured I'd toss it your way.
