Eva Edelstein Walling - age 93 in 2008.....

I remember the natatorium on the boardwalk between 2nd and 3rd Aves and how we could get a discount if we could get 10 girls at once. My brother Sam had a store in the boardwalk  in the natatorium - general merchandise - french fries, etc. different things in different years  The ice cream and waffle place was next door  The first time I saw vinegar put on French fries was  by the English sailors who were in the hotel (can't remember the name) for rr I remember the screens that were put up on the east side of the boardwalk and the dim lights in case during ww there were any submarines loitering in the ocean.  I remember the baby parades I was in as a subject of the queen.  Also getting dressed up to parade on the boardwalk on Easter Sunday where orchids were given to the best dressed ladies.  Saturday night the visitors in the Berkeley Carteret would be dressed in formal clothes as they walked the boardwalk and when we wore a hat and gloves when we walked the boardwalk.  I graduated A.P. High in June 1932;  that dates me.

You might add that the natatorium  was an indoor,  salt water, heated swimming pool whose water was piped in from the ocean.

I have just one more question.  My maiden name is Edelstein.  My two oldest brothers (Al or Ben) were city attorney or city magistrate at different times but I'm just wondering if they are remembered.  At my age (93) I don't know who's left to ask.

The Bedford and Aberdeen Hotels in Asbury


My grandmother, Mrs Emily Smith owned and operated two hotels in Asbury Park, Bedford Hotel and Aberdeen Hotel.For many years - late 30"s to early 50's I spent my early years attending the Bond Street School and Asbury Park High School as well as enjoying the many summers walking the boardwalk, riding the rides, swimming in the ocean and too many other activities to list..

I have often wondered what happened to the hotels.  If anyone can supply that information I would be very grateful. Many happy memories are attached to my years growing up in beautiful Asbury Park,
