Well, you have presented yourself as knowledgeable about Asbury and then posted 10 year old photos. I got news for you: my beloved Tillie is long gone.
So I naturally thought you should be up on Springsteen’s contributions to the town. Maybe the word “secret” was incorrect. His donations are anonymous but it’s an open “secret” in AP.
I thought they preserved the Tillie section somewhere. If I recall, there’s an imitation one up the boardwalk.
Honestly, I have only driven through Asbury maybe three times in the last 10 years.
My folks used to take us there often during the 60s (they had my all-time favorite walk-through funhouse there).
Saw my very first rock concert (Black Sabbath’s Master of Reality tour, yes I’m old) at Convention Hall, followed by a ton of shows over the years.
Back in the 70s - 80s, my best friend from high school had moved there, so spent a lot of time hanging out. After that, I kind of lost track of the goings on down there.
My kids go to the festivals there, even attended one of the zombie-walks they had a few years ago.
Most of my knowledge is admittedly based on fond memories.
