Technically not a cedar at all, but a cypress, the tree grew well in wet areas and was naturally rot-resistant.
Ironically, these excellent properties are what made the wood an unsustainable choice.
Relatively affordable, this is the same stuff that wooden roller coasters, like Coney Island's famous Cyclone, were made of.
Speaking of Coney Island, we can assume they followed the same wood "diet" for their boardwalk erected in the 1920s, though we don't know for sure.
Atlantic City thus had to find a different wood to maintain, repair and update their boardwalk, and they switched over to Western Red Cedar.
The stuff was also pricey because it had to be shipped in from the Pacific Northwest, but it was easier to get than Atlantic White Cedar; and being a rainforest wood, it dealt well with moisture.
Just yesterday there was another rally in Brooklyn protesting the plan."If you think we're happy that wood is being replaced by material we find less appealing, that is certainly not the case....
It's called a Boardwalk, and if you use other material, it loses its identity.
What we do know for sure is that Coney Island's boardwalk, officially called the Riegelmann Boardwalk, was the first to switch over to a tropical rainforest wood.
