This is the first (pre-season) Blogfinger edition of “Girls In Their Summer Clothes.”  Perhaps you were expecting short shorts, bikinis, black leggings, thongs, or summer dresses, but these runners were having fun with their colorful campy outfits, just right for running 2.2 miles in public.

 

REMINDER:  THE NJ MARATHON will breeze through Ocean Grove on Sunday morning, April 28.

The race begins in Long Branch at 7:30, and Ocean Pathway/boardwalk will be near the end, so around 9-9:30 am in the Grove.

In 2016  we posted an article about the praise being lavished upon A. Park.

2016 AP rankings

Last spring Money Magazine named AP as having the second best beachfront in the US, ahead of many famous locations in California, Texas, etc.   “Asbury Park offers the classic combo of beach and boardwalk,” the magazine says.

The Asbury Park Press also reported that list.   Asbury has also been ranked high for the city’s “cultural scene.”  In 2017 it was named the “coolest small town in America.”

But,  not so fast.  Asbury has recently  been reported to have the second highest violent crime rate in the state.  And, according to the AP Sun, the city has been named this February to the “top 50 worst cities to live-in across the nation.” Similar reports have been mentioned in articles in the AP Press and the AP Patch.

Among the statistics, the city is reported to be high in poverty rankings, low median incomes, and high median home prices.

So, which is it:  best or worst?

Blogfinger:   The best or the worst?    “It depends on where you stand.”

NANCY LAMOTT: “Not Exactly Paris.”
