I just saw The Wrestler last night and went online to confirm that that was Asbury Park when I found your blog. I spent part of every summer of my life at my grandparents’ hotel, The Lynhurst at 217 2nd Ave. down the street from the Stone Pony, until they closed it in the late 1980s. Eventually they sold it and a few years later it burned down in a suspicious fire.

I'm almost 50-years-old but my memories from that hotel and Asbury Park are still some of my favorites. I live in LA now and every now and then I go online to check how AP is doing. I really appreciate what you wrote and shared it with my mother and brother. This is what my brother wrote back. "That article made me smile with wonderful memories and a feeling of happiness as if a dear friend of mine who had been very ill for a long time was now finally getting better."

There are lots of people out there who love Asbury Park even if they haven't been there in decades. Thanks for sharing that she's doing so well.

I'm watching The Wrestler right now and I wanted to confirm that this was Asbury Park. I was just there in 2009 and I agree it's on a comeback. It's funny that you point out how producers want to keep it bad.
