Prince Harry tours Sandy-ravaged areas

Posted: Updated:

Great Britain's Prince Harry visited several towns along the Jersey Shore that were devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

The prince began the tour Tuesday morning with a stop in Mantoloking with Gov. Chris Christie followed by a visit to Seaside Heights.

The prince walked down a road along the Barnegat Bay where many houses were destroyed.

In Seaside Heights, Prince Harry saw the roller coaster that plunged into the ocean off an amusement pier.

The two played a game of chance, tossing plastic balls at a hole and giving the prizes to children who they were teamed with.

"It's the American spirit. Everyone coming together and making things right. It's fantastic," said HRH.

Following his tour of the Garden State, Harry headed to New York City to promote British trade and a community baseball program.

On Tuesday evening, the prince is to be the honored guest at a Manhattan fundraiser for the foundation.

Before leaving the country, Prince Harry will travel Wednesday to Greenwich, Connecticut, to captain a polo team as part of the Sentebale Polo Cup.

The prince began a weeklong visit to the U.S. on May 9.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
