In the Asbury Park Casino, where lots of murals have been painted in the last few years, there is a rainbow dripping down one of the exterior columns. It’s kind of horrible, and kind of beautiful. But you can decide for yourself.

In part of an ongoing effort to beautify Asbury Park, they painted some murals in and around the Asbury Park casino. I first saw the murals in spring/summer 2009 (which is when this was taken).
Any tasteful (TASTEFUL) painting with tentacles is okay by me.

I think I have photos of the exact wall before it was painted, but I’ll need to find them and re-upload them; I had all my black-and-white photos stored on Zooomr, which permanently went kaput without giving any warning.

Every time I go back to Asbury Park, the casino looks different. Above is how the Ocean Grove side of the casino looked in 2011…
…but THIS is how it looked four years ago, in 2007.
Thus far, this has not happened.
It’s interesting to watch this stuff happen over time.

Interior of Asbury Park Casino–what’s left of it, anyway. And, just to orient you, if you click that “Asbury Park Casino” link and pretend you’re standing there, this is what you’d see if you looked through a hole in the wall to your left.
(Click the photo for a larger size! This is two photos hand-stitched together with no fancy software.)

I took some photos of the Asbury Park Casino back in February. At this point, they’ve removed everything to the right of that big pillar with the lantern on top.
BUT THERE IS HOPE!
These plans are posted on a plexiglass-protected board standing at the end of the Ocean Grove boardwalk (about 30-40 feet in front of the casino).
Another small point of interest- when I originally photographed the casino in February, the entire structure was fenced off; the fence is now (mostly) gone, and the casino once again acts as a walk-between for the Ocean Grove and Asbury Park boardwalks.
