Asbury then and now

I stopped by Asbury Park today on the way back home from Cape May.
Some progress since my last visit but very slow.
A few nice shops open on the new boardwalk but the Casino remains an eyesore and the Casino Carousel building is fenced off.
Take a look and keep your fingers crossed.


  1. So sad. I still get tears in my eyes when I see that.

  2. Me, too. Why, oh why. couldn't this have been prevented! The poor casino entrance.....

  3. I was down there also about a month ago...It is so sad to see the old Casino Arena looking like that...Saw many great concets there in the 70's.

  4. Well the beautiful Casino Carousel building is still there so we can all be hopeful.
    There were also a handful of small, new shops on the boardwalk between Convention Hall and the Casino.
    Convention Hall looked pretty good. I'll do a separate post on that.

  5. Really so sad how it's all gone! Who knows by some miracle maybe it will come back not like the old days though. :(
