some images from a dilapidated resort town Having left work, with time on my hands, I spend a prolonged Christmas break with the family on the East coast. One sunny day Ted, Dad and I drive to the New Jersey Shore to spend some time together. We decide to check out Asbury Park to see if it's been cleaned up at all. When I was younger, we used to go down to Ocean Grove - the town just next to Asbury Park. Asbury Park was always the destination for the day though as it had the boardwalk of games and rides and food. Sometime between now and then though the boardwalk failed and hasn't been able to reinvent itself as a destination. Granted it's winter time so there's no expectation that the boardwalk is going to be hopping, but this is beyond bad..
