"DJ's Collection" (From June 2005)

Comments: I went to Asbury Park and took some photos. There are people EVERYWHERE on the boardwalk now it is fantastic!  It looks almost like a real resort again. There were also a lot of people on the balconies of the Empress Hotel, and in the new arcades.  These photo's give the basic idea of how Asbury looks today, in 2005.  Tillie is showing up everywhere in Asbury these days! From Arcade games, to mugs, to T-shirts, you name it, everyone on Asbury's boardwalk has Tillie! Another Nightclub has opened about a block from the beach, it is called "The Circuit Club."

"A contingent of Leni Lenape Indians Returned to Asbury Park to see how the Pale face has been treating the land these natives once roamed upon freely. By the looks on these descendents of the Delare tribes, they dont seem to happy about the condition of their former real estate."  Robert Steele
