In our piece about the SS Morro Castle (11/19/16) , we pointed out that the burned out hulk of the ocean liner remained only 200 feet out into the water of Asbury Park, and it became a tourist attraction there.  This photograph shows some of those folks on the beach with the M.C. behind them.  Today they could have taken their own photo with a selfie stick.

In  1934, an Ocean Liner (SS Morro Castle), was traveling from Havana to New York  when it caught fire and beached on the shores of Asbury Park. There were 137 deaths.

A handful of survivors washed  up at the Zombie Walk in Asbury Park (October 2013)
