    I def. agree that there are a lot of shady characters in asbury. I don't know if any of you have heard about madison marquette rebuilding the boardwalk and some of the area around it. They are putting a lot of up scale retail such as clothing stores and places to eat. At the moment the city is still not a great area but within 5-10 years alot of the people who cause the crime and things could be driven out due to higher prices and upscale living.

    The surf is still pretty solid regardless.

    I lived in AP on 3rd ave by comstock from the time I was born until i was 11 and it was time for middle school (parents thought it might be in my best interest to get me out of the school district). East of kingsley and cookman may apprear to be nice and sweet with all the new shops and restruants but lincoln village, springwood, and bangs ave. are not going anywhere. There still is alot of crime granted the police have stepped up patrols along ocean ave and cookman to keep the out of town clients(money) safe. The city is going to need alot of time to completely turn around propably another 25 years. That will most people enough time to forget about the '68 riots and if the redevelopment continues and the developer does not go bankrubt(work already stopped on the espenansa) on the same ocean ave property that the last developer did in '84. Most families are going to aviod buying there because of the school district and crime rate.

    yeah., dude you hit the head on the nail. At least 25 years if not more...haha like you said springwood and bangs will never change. Also the Esperanza big multi million dollar condos going up. But who's buying? Noone! Nobody want's to live in a nice condo surrounded by poverty. School district is a joke too.

    OP - If you need a place to live....check out some surrounding towns that border AP. You may find a gem. Otherwise you have been warned.

    the crown jewel of the jersey shore

    they should start with paving the ocean ave road its like driving through a minefield, i've always wondered what the surf is like in asbury and that's all i've ever done, its probably safer to park by 8th ave and just walk down the beach next to the water with syringe protecting booties and a knife at least thats the vibe i get when ive driven through there. . .asbury used to be really nice until the riots and the deinstintutionalizing of the mentally ill right? there must be an interesting history

    Yeah, I forgot about that when marlboro mental closed it had a great effect on the AP community. I belive that happen shortly after we moved out i believe in '88. As a kid growing up there you don't recongize the situation your in until you move out and see that things that happen in AP are no longer acceptable in other locations.

    Yeah most of them moved to Ocean Grove/Asbury after Marlboro closed down...and some are still here.. It's creepy sometimes seeing these people walk the streets. They are like zombies.
