    Great views of Asbury's water front, when you can access a window I've been told that the grand ballroom on the first floor is worth checking out, I was unable to get to it on my visit. Great old neon sign and wacky interior wallpaper.

    As with most of Asbury's waterfront district this will be demolished eventually to make way for condos and other architectually bland buildings.
