sigh...asbury requires not being a dumb white kid and using some common sense. it's not unreasonably dangerous, but it has a lot of poor people, so don't leave expensive shit in plain view in your car, or park it on a poorly lit residential street, and then walk to and from said parking spot talking on a cell phone or something.
and the holy mess is awesome.
Perfectly said...live in Rumson and feel the same way. Know what your doing in Asbury Park and you'll be fine.
Glad to hear music shops are still opening, especially in Monmouth County, NJ.
