Asbury 1944

What man builds nature can take in a flash. This photo shows the unbelievable damage sustained by Asbury Park during the Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944. Convention Hall in the distance sustained damage but survived the massive storm.


  1. This is a great photo! Even in ruin, the old A.P. Boardwalk was beautiful. It's sad we'll never see it like this again.

  2. Love this site can find treasures like this!

  3. I was born in AP five years after this photo. I love everything about AP. It was a great place to grow up and it is growing into a place that fits its history. AP's vices are its virtues turned upside down. You gotta love it!
