“I knew the bell existed, but I never dreamed I would find it,” diver Gene Ritter told The Post yesterday. “I thought it would be buried in mud.”
Ritter, who discovered the treasure in November not far from where the pier once stood off the West Eighth Street beachfront, said the find left him with the same “incredible” feeling he had in 1990 when he was the first to find remnants of Dreamland under the ocean.
