Asbury Park Reviews

8 reviews
All Categories
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!
Love all of the restaurant and bars, can be unsafe late at night, and parking in the summer is terrible.
My overall experience of Asbury Park is okay , I lived in Asbury all of my life , so I've gotten use to the environment, I would like to come back. This is my hometown , I have so much friends and family here. Compared to any other country Asbury wouldn't even be on the board.
