Asbury Park / Ocean Grove / Jersey Shore
We are planning a day at the NJ Shore for some good photo opportunities, and hopefully some refreshing ocean breezes.
We will begin the day in Asbury Park. There is a good boardwalk with lots of opportunities for street photography, amusements, the beach, ocean people, you name it. Although many boardward buildings were stripped of their original glory and fell into disrepair when the town declined, many of the structures are still standing such as the Carousel House. Much of the concrete-and-limestone casino building and the old steam heating plant, skeletal but grand reminders of the area’s former beauty, haunt the end of the boardwalk at 700 Ocean Avenue. Some the casino’s original polished terrazzo and plasterwork are still visible.
A short drive from Asbury Park is next door Ocean Grove which boasts many interesting Victorian homes, the Great Auditorium and Tent City. Ocean Grove also has a boardwalk along the beach, but it’s a quiet respite away from the busyness of Asbury Park.
Exact meet-up times and location will be posted soon.
