Interior at Stewart’s 9/6/16

Most of you are aware of the old-fashioned hardware stores in Ocean Grove and Asbury Park.  Visiting such places is nostalgic–they often have items that you may have not seen in many years.   They each have their own special personalities, but they share a down-home atmosphere, personal attention,  and a huge inventory.

We have visited Stewart’s in the past and always enjoyed conversing with the helpful staff.  The store is at 703 Brinley Avenue, adjacent to the train station.  Next door is  a shop that claims to have the best prices for nutritional supplements, and across the very special  Riley Park at the train station on Main Street, in the old ticket office, is the ultra-cute “Back in Time Café ” breakfast and lunch restaurant  owned by Ocean Grover  Reenie Van Buren who serves wonderful home-made organic food—-worth going to Bradley Beach for.  (See BF review linked below.)

MARLENE DIETRICH from the Woody movie “Scenes From a Mall.”     This song is also by Cole Porter. Great lyrics for “You Do Something to Me”  (“Do do that voodoo that you do so well”)
