Asbury Park Casino

Asbury Park Casino


Asbury Park, New Jersey (NJ), US
Convention center and amusement arcade.

Asbury Park recovered from the fire and severe devastation caused by a winter storm in 1923 with a building boom. Among the buildings built during this rejuvenation were the Santander, long known as a posh summer apartment house, the Berkeley-Carteret, Convention Hall and the Casino. The Casino and Convention Hall were designed by the architects Warren and Wetmore, who designed New York's Grand Central Station. Convention Hall, a unique structure, also included on the State and National Register, would fit comfortably on St. Mark's Square in Venice.

Since the BEV imagery was shot the eastern portion of the building was demolished.
