Greetings from Asbury Park

Asbury Park, New Jersey, a small, yet storied city alongside the Atlantic Ocean is one of my favorite places. People flock to it for the music, the food, and, of course, the beach. Over the past decade, my wife and I have built a tradition of visiting Asbury Park for an off-season vacation every spring or autumn.

Recently, I received a copy of Gentrification Down the Shore by Molly Vollman Makris and Mary Gatta to review for The Metropole. The authors’ subject — Asbury Park. Needless to say, I was thrilled with this assignment.

You can read my review here. This book is a must for anyone planning a trip to Asbury Park this summer.
