Asbury Park, New Jersey

I took these pictures back in 2001. Basically, Asbury Park used to be a big tourist destination until things went downhill, and it mostly became a ghost town full of abandoned hotels and even an abandoned amusement park. There has been a restoration initiative in the last couple of years, so some of these buildings have either been fixed up or torn down since I took these pictures.

This is the "downtown" area.

Abandoned boardwalk (The beginning of the move "Dogma" takes place here.)


The Empress Motel


The Metropolitan Motel


Huge skeleton of a building... There were supposed to be condos here, but the people building it ran out of money in the middle of construction (sometime in the 1980s!) and left it this way because they couldn't afford to tear it down.
