    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.

    The Dice

    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.
