Paul Eichlin still making his “carousel music” on the OG side of the North End boards. Some day the area behind him will be filled with stores, condos and a hotel. Paul Goldfinger photo. Oct. 2019. ©

©  Paul Goldfinger photograph on the OG asphalt boards, looking south, near the Casino.  A reminder of what will be lost.

 

It is treading too lightly to call the NERP “Asbury Park South”    Our North End Redevelopment project will be more intrusive near the ocean than Asbury or other nearby towns  have done.

And don’t forget the White Whale site (where the recent fire occurred) where developers will try to re-build east of our boardwalk.   Which of our neighbors have built recently east of their boardwalk?

The OG North End is currently open space, light, and air.  OGNED will destroy that and create something more congested on our boardwalk than even Asbury has done on theirs.  Their condos are all around the AP beach area, but not on top of the boardwalk as will occur with the NERP.  And their boardwalk is much wider than ours.

The reason for the current asphalt jungle over there is that they need to figure out the elevations for construction immediately adjacent to the west side of the boardwalk

Blogfinger video clip.  August 7, 2019. OG boards;  Bikers emerge from A. Park and keep going south on the Ocean Grove Boardwalk.

These bikers crossed the great divide, passed the sign below, and breezed by  despite the sign warnings.  No bike riding is permitted except 3 am to 10 am every day. until October 1.

But can you blame them—-delighted to be biking along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean on a lovely day?

Besides, despite the warning  that the bike ordinance would be  strictly enforced by the Neptune police, it won’t be.  Click photo below to read it.

But, I remember being a teenager at the Jersey Shore…who reads signs?

We addressed this subject a few years ago on Blogfinger, and viewers continue to link to that article  (below):

heading north - Version 2 2014

Leaving Ocean Grove to explore A. Park. c. 2014.   Will the 2019 OG  North End become as  welcoming as it is in this photograph?  Or will it become Asbury Park South?    Paul Goldfinger photograph. ©  Click to enlarge.         Note, the White Whale  (pink in this photo)  burned down on April 13, 2019.  As for Bridgegate, this is an alternate route after midnight without any locks . A. Park owns the Casino building.

And as for girls in their summer clothes, since 2014 the bottoms got higher and the tops got tighter…it’s all good and now rated PG–at least in A. Park;  maybe PG 13 in the Grove.

From Jean Bredin  (video)  Around Town with Jean:

“The Ocean Grove Summer Band performed a variety of songs tonight at the Great Auditorium. this is  Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever”—a traditional march to get toes tapping and hands clapping at the conclusion of an OG concert.
There was a nice crowd who came out to hear the music.
Harry Eichhorn treated us by leading the band for a number of songs .
This is their 66th year.
Here is a Blogfinger link from 2015.

By Jean Bredin,Blogfinger staff ©, 4/13/18. Paul Eichlin usually plays inside the Casino, but today he ventures outside.

Says Jean:   “Daffodils, crocuses, and Paul Eichorn.
Spring is officially here.
There he was, catching a little sun on the Ocean Grove Boardwalk,
playing all the carousel tunes he can remember.”
