SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) —

Britain's Prince Harry is heading to New York City after finishing a tour of two New Jersey towns hard hit by Superstorm Sandy.

Gov. Chris Christie led the prince along the rebuilt boardwalk in Seaside Heights, where the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" was taped.

The prince also saw the roller coaster that Sandy tossed into the sea.

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

Earlier, Harry and Christie shook hands with police during a half hour visit to Mantoloking (man-toh-LOH'-king).

Harry was surprised to learn a house once stood where a breach caused by Sandy allowed the Atlantic Ocean to cascade into Barnegat Bay.
