"Culture Thieves," Asbury Park

Eastern Surf Magazine asked me to pen this piece on the recent controversy in Asbury Park the controversial townhome project on the North End and the developer's co-opting of surfboards to align themselves with part of the culture that has helped rebuild the city's waterfront. They also used a handful of Ann's photos. This is the full story and images.

Ann and I both have a history with this town going back over 20 years each, long before the redevelopment. We're still there for shows, events, and friends a few times a month. You can check Ann's online Asbury Gallery that has shows some of the history of the last ten years, with many of the photos taken before the revitalization.
