The light of day oking thru the floor after superstorm sandy , still wasn’t to o bad compared to the rest of the pavilions
Height mattered , looks like about 4-5 feet above the boardwalk
I was able to photograph the inside of the 13th ave pavilion after Superstorm Sandy, what was amazing was the largest part of the building, that was built 5 feet higher than the boardwalk fared much better in the storm, than the boardwalk level snack bar that was destroyed.Here are a couple of photos showing the inside and outside of the pavilion.

November 2 2012 , Matisse Belmar interior of 13th ave pavilion None of the windows at Matisse were broken, even though they faced the ocean waves. The windows were all boarded up by staff 2 days before the storm.The building was elevated about 5 feet above the boardwalk, so the storm waves did not crash as hard.Built in 1929 it withstood the storm pretty well.
The view from the kitchen window at Matisse, after the hurricane Sandy. The outdoor deck was destroy along with the lower level snack bar rea. The Pavillion itself withstood the storm pretty. Built in 1929, this building has seen a lot of storms, it did not survive , though it could have been repaired.
the boardwalk level snack bar, was hit really hard.
