Asbury Park, NJ

Brobot Rock

Asbury Park, NJ had it's first major boom during the height of the Victorian era in the 1890's and this brilliant architecture still dominates the town today.

It also helped in the war effort - in a rather roundabout manner - by hosting the 1943 New York Yankees Spring Training! To reduce train travel, all MLB Spring Training was required to be east of the Mississippi River and north of the Ohio River. What better a place to host the NY Yankees than one of the most popular warm weather destination points around New York City!
