Camera location is at 1212 1st Avenue

Bruce Springsteen and the Stone Pony

by nicolaitan

These two names are inextricably linked for all time in rock legend, yet there is less here than one might suspect. By the time the club opened, he had already released two albums - Greetings from Asbury Park and The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle and was an established star. He has appeared here more than at any other club or auditorium in the world, but almost always as an unannounced and often spontaneous walk-on jamming with the contracted bands. His only actual contracted perfomance was a decade after the club opened, the first stop on the Born to Run tour. The house band was Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, a fabulous band in their own right, featuring Steve Van Zandt on guitar. His current wife, Patty Scialfa, was brought up in Asbury Park, but returned to the Stone Pony as a backup singer for the Southside Johnny band.
As the Stone Pony spiraled toward bankruptcy and foreclosure around 1990 a local group formed to try to save the bar, unsuccessfully. Famously, Springsteen refused to become involved in the effort which may have been critical. Not exactly what the legend says, true?

Palace Amusements

by nicolettart

On the official register of National Historic Landmarks, the face on this building is Asbury's most recognizable image. For a while there was a rumor it would be torn down, then it 2000 it became a landmark.

Update: Tillie has been dismantled, and the building is no more. Tillie is now in storage.

The Dice

by nicolaitan

My memory recalls when every young man's car carried two accessories, both entwined around the rear view mirror - the large sponge dice and the "steady girlfriend's" kerchief. This custom has apparently receded all over the US but still persists 'on the shore' as seen here in a PT cruiser parked in an Asbury parking lot.

Airplane Advertisements

by nicolaitan

A form of advertisement unique to the New York area and particularly the Jersey shore are the tiny one engine planes which are based in small airports and fly up and down the shore just off the beachline, trailing behind them advertisement banners for banks, shows, insurance companies, and most everything else. Most of the banners used to be for beer, but these are apparently not permitted or in any case used now.
