Steve Valk, of OG and Germany, and I went to the Asbury Hotel in July 2016, and it is a unique and beautiful place.  But while we were there, unlocking our bicycles, we saw this lovely miss in her summer clothes. .

The new 110 room hotel The Asbury is an exciting collaboration by a famous hotel designer and the innovative hotel group called SALT.  You can read the details at their website (above)  But what’s interesting from an Ocean Grove perspective is that this will be a moderately priced place which will do very well.  So if you are WAVE and you are married to a 2008 North End Redevelopment Plan which includes a hotel, would you want to reconsider that hotel idea now?

At 2 pm on Valentine’s Day, there were no parking spaces available up and down Cookman Avenue. Even the new parking lot adjacent to Wesley Lake, opposite the Great Auditorium, was practically full.  Asbury Park really needs a hotel, but what young hipster is going to want to stay in OG, especially when there will be no booze?

The North End redevelopers in the Grove are about to step to the plate and get the project going, but what will they do when they have to sign a Redevelopers Agreement that compels them to build that hotel, especially when there will be no way out of the obligatory parking garage that will cost a fortune even if it is feasible? And how about the congestion which that hotel will bring?

Right now this is speculative, but nature abhors a vacuum, so without any information from Neptune Twp, Camp Meeting Association and WAVE, speculation is what we have access to.  If WAVE wants to skip the hotel and have condos instead, they will be met by a furor from the public which prefers single family homes over there.

JERRY ORBACH :    “You can see a distant steeple….”    Yes, that’s the Great Auditorium, and you can also see the Lake and the Ocean.
