On christmas eve I decided it was a good day to go see my old friend Asbury Park, to check on all the changes people have been telling me about. More than 6 months after my last visit and video entry, I was shocked to find one of my favorite abandoned structures, the Casino, had been demolished. On display was a grand plan to rebuild it to its former beauty. Unfortunately not more than a week after this was recorded, I read the stories of how 2 major developers of the water front have pulled out because of the housing crisis or fear that Asbury Park will not ever turn a profit.
This is my update on Asbury Park, December 2007, pardon the wind noise. Credit to Mr. Springsteen for his song, Gonna Be a Long Walk Home, which of course is very appropriate for his hometown.
