LONG BRANCH, N.J. - Over the years, this once-vibrant vacation spot watched its sandy beaches and its tourism erode. Then came the fire in 1987 that destroyed the city's fishing pier, boardwalk and an amusement park called Kid's World.Now, after a decade that left it faded and abandoned, this stretch of Atlantic coast is on the brink of a comeback and, curiously enough, the cutting edge of urban planning.Five developers are negotiating with the city to build housing, a restored pier, an entertainment center, restaurants and shops all connected by resculptured streets lined with trees, walkways and bicycle paths.
