There was a great deal of Open Space on the beach at Bradley Cove in Asbury Park yesterday afternoon. Yesterday was a gorgeous beach day.
Just to the north in Loch Arbour and Allenhurst, there was a lot less Open Space.
Immediately to the south of Bradley Cove beach, North Beach, across the street from the federally subsidized senior citizen housing, there was also a lot of Open Space.
I’m thinking of putting my name of the waiting list for Asbury Tower. In six years when I’ll be age eligible there might be an opening. I could walk to the Bradley Cove Condos, if they are built, and visit my friend Tommy DeSeno who wants to move there, and watch the surfers and fisherman from his balcony. If the condos are not built, either because Asbury Park, Monmouth County and rest of New Jersey taxpayers buy back the development rights to Bradley Cove with Green Acres funds, or because iStar, the company who owns the development rights didn’t build them, Tommy can visit me in my $850/month subsidized apartment. That would really Tommy him off. But I digress.
Further south in Asbury Park, the beach was busy and beach badge sales were brisk for a Wednesday afternoon.
Up in Long Branch, the beach in front of Pier Village was packed.
All the area beaches except Bradley Cove and adjoining North Beach were busy yesterday. That’s because there are no amenities for those beaches.
