From 1930's Honeymoon to the year 2006 a reader says

Received 10/2006: Twice during the 1930s when I was a youngster, (I am now 75) my parents and I visited relatives in Freehold, the first time in 1935 and again two years later. Of course, on each of these visits we were taken to Asbury Park. To this day, I can remember the boardwalk, the Convention Hall and even playing miniature golf. These visits were exciting and glamorous adventure. 
 A decade and a half later,  my wife and I holidayed on our honeymoon for a few days in Asbury Park, staying at the Monterey Hotel. The city was just as attractive and fun as it had been years earlier..

This past weekend, (now married 52 years) we returned to Asbury Park for a few hours, this time with one of our daughters.  While I had heard that the city had suffered grievous times, nothing had prepared us for the devastation that we witnessed.  The city today looks like a bombed out ruin in a third  world country. The wreck of the Casino is simply unbelievable. And the Monterey is no more. What we had hoped would bring back nostalgic memories turned into a sad and somber experience

From the signs of construction, it would appear that efforts are underway to reverse the fortunes of Asbury Park. One can only hope.

A spin off memory of the July 1937 trip. The Hindenburg disaster had occurred only two months before, and so we visited the U.S. Naval air Station at Lakehurst. Back then (unlike today) there were no restrictions on entry into the huge hanger that had been built for the giant transatlantic airships. I can distinctly remember seeing the aluminum nosecone of the Hindenburg suspended on a wall of the hanger. I understand  that the cone was melted down during the Second World War to assist the war effort. 

So many memories... so many years.

Growing up in Asbury Park
August 2006: I grow up in Asbury Park many years old. Sweet dreams and memories to me was 1226 Washington Avenue just few blocks from the beach. As I type this email a smile comes to my face.  I lived on Washington avenue for 17 years. My family and I relocated to Virginia in 1978 which I still live with my children and husband. I share my memories of Asbury Park beach front and boardwalk with daughters and grandson. I think mine most favorite memory for me is the fun house and last day of school( Asbury Park High School). All of my friends and I would run as fast as we could to the beach to celebrate the last day of school and having some freedom. Hey it was the seventies! When I do get home with my family I do try  to go to Asbury Park beach. Just sit there and remember the good old days that has gone by. I try to keep up with the news and going on! I am truly happy with the changes that have came to Asbury and what will come. Keep up the good work! In closing to those who read my name yes, I am the daughter of the man who was killed in 1963 by a police officer.
