ASBURY PARK, NJ - MAY 31: The 16-ft. tall clown face of Tillie remains on the abandoned Palace Amusements building, May 31, 2003 in Asbury park, New Jersey. From the late 1800s to the 1970s, Asbury Park was the jewel of the New Jersey Shore, with rides and shops and thousands of visitors. In more recent history however, Asbury Park is more like a ghost town with abandoned, boarded up buildings and a decreasing population since the 1980s. In 2007 the eastern portion of the Casino building was demolished. The Jersey Shore, a 127 mile stretch of coastline known for its variety of beaches, boardwalks, small towns, natural beauty and summer crowds, has been a popular summer destination for over a century.
