Asbury Park, New Jersey
Home Of Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen
This lens is about a little trip to Asbury Park, NJ I made with my husband. We went for a Metalfest. It made for a very interesting trip because most of the town was deserted and had empty buildings everywhere.
The hotel we stayed in was called The Berkeley Hotel, and it was just across the street from the venue of the concert, but it was the only hotel in town that was open. We had an interesting walk along an abandoned boardwalk though. Rumor has it that they're trying to put some life back into the area.

Kind Of Creepy
I must admit, it was kind of creepy walking along an abandoned boardwalk, and seeing a bunch of boarded up buildings.
The hotel we stayed at was very nice. I imagine it was a luxury hotel back "in the day" as they say. The Stone Pony is still there. It's very small. Hard to believe anyone could get discovered there now.
The Berkely Hotel played nothing but Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi in the bar. It was kind of funny. We were all joking about it.
Let me know what you thought of this lens. Thanks for visiting!
