At the southern end of the boardwalk is the Casino, built in 1903
Not far from the casino stands the minty aqua-green facade of the Palace Amusements building. The character, which was given the name Tilly, has greeted visitors to Asbury Park with his wide-eyed, maniacal smile since he was first painted on the Palace back in the 1940's.
Asbury Park is not the beach that people growing up in Jersey came to love. Now it seems more like a real "Ghost Town"
