Well, this won’t win any photo contests, but everything I’ve shown you lately has been TOO SMALL. So let’s look at something big.

This is the Jersey Shore Arts Center, located in what you’d THINK would be Asbury Park, right outside Ocean Grove’s main gate… but is apparently Ocean Grove’s territory. It used to be the old Neptune high school, and it was hailed at the 1906 World’s Fair as “an architectural splendor,” but it died, as neglected buildings often do. In 1997, the Ocean Grove Historic Preservation Society began turning it into “a beautiful home for the cultural arts at the New Jersey shore.”
