A person who lives up north and comes down for the summer/long weekends.
You may often find a benny wearing clothes that say "What Happens Down The Shore, Stays Down The Shore".
Bennys are usually extremely obnoxious and this shows once the sun goes down and they crowd the boardwalks of Seaside Heights and Point Pleasant.
Bennys have no respect for the locals, they seem to think that they "own this shit".
Also, bennys more than often use the term "down the shore".
However, there is a difference between the bennys who come to seaside heights and the bennys who visit seaside park, which is immeditately south of the heights.
Seaside park bennys have respect and most of the time act as if they've lived there forever because they own a summer house. They make friends with the locals and even party with them.
There's a fine line between shitty bennys and chill bennys, and that line is the border of seaside heights and seaside park.
"YO I OWN THIS FAWKIN TOWN BITCHES!"
Seaside Park Benny:
"Dude, lets go to the beach tonight I got a 30."
Locals can spot a BENNY from miles away. They're ususaly of Italian decent, mostly from New York, they ask the dumbest things like "Which way is the beach?" and "What do you guys do during the winter?", they can't drive for shit, they think they're sweet, they crowd out beaches, malls, and basically our entire lives. They know only the major roads to get to the shore + home, they think it's cool to come down for the weekend, go to one of the 50 clubs on Ocean Av., trash the state and leave on Sunday. The cops all come out after Memorail day and hunt for the New York plates until Labor day, they pay WAY to much for a shack a block away from the beach, they can't handle a Jeresy Girl nor do they know just how good of a state New Jersey is.
Best of all, they have no fucking idea what a 'Benny' is.
Local (pointing west towards Newark): "That way." (mumbling under his/her breath) "Go home fucking benny..."
if you do not live at the jersey shore, stay the fuck out. we hate you and you are not welcome.
