Asbury Park Reviews

I have lived in Asbury Park all my life. Being able to walk or bike to the beach has been the best part of living here. There is always something to do and Asbury really cares about the community. There are so many healthy options for food and lifestyle in Asbury Park, especially going towards the beach. The school system does need to strive for better advancement of the students but they try their best on a daily basis.
Review Asbury Park
The Famous Asbury Park, well known for its beach and boardwalk. As well as bad schooling and horrible crime rate.

The atmosphere you may get in Asbury is very different. You could be in a good one or bad. Depending on your location and time of day. If I could live here again I would because it's a beautiful place & its also all I've know my entire life. But then again I would not want to. With many reasons why but the main one being a High School graduating rate of 38 percent for the 2014/2015 school year. Its only gotten worse over the years!
Asbury Park is the best shore town in New Jersey! It has cute shops and trendy restaurants and the beach is really pretty! Students can get a seasons beach badge for super cheap! Visit today!
