Its past reveals an veritable “A to Z” in attractions and venues and more. For the letter “A” we would give it to the Atlantic Ocean onwhos sandy shores Asbury is located. For the letter “B” we would list the Boardwalk. The letter “C” would connote the twin bookends of the famous Casino and the Convention Hall, past home to world championship Boxing fights as well as the “Miss America Pageant” and numerous concerts and performances. The letter “D” would hold true to form for the delicious “Salt Water Taffy” that spread from Asbury to every other seaside resort. But, unfortunately, ” one other letter is missing, this one is the letter “P” for Palace Amusements. Ranking right up there with the hallowed grounds of the past parks in Coney Island NY, The Pike in California, Palisades Park in NJ and Riverview in Chicago, the Amusements from this seaside building, dating well back to the late 1890s have not been given their due, until now.
