  1. Great pictures — especially of my memories of going and working at Kids World and hanging at Beach Plum.

    Great photos. Particularly the Historic Map showing all the open inlets that fish once spawned in along our coast. Now piped up one of the premier reasons for the declining fish population off our coast. Would be nice to be able to post comments beneath each individual photo. Nice tribute to Tom.

    Yes, great pics! Thanks for sharing these, the older pics brings back many good memories, too bad things have to change so much.

    Under the boardwalk I used to collect the coins that fell through the cracks and I always went to Chelsea pool. So many good memories, Max’s hotdogs were yummy and the pier also had an arcade on it that I went almost daily in the summers. Great pics!

    I lived in South Amboy, NJ as a child and moved to Pennsylvania when I was 14 in 1972. I was just this day talking to my husband about how we used to go to Asbury Park and ride the merry-go-round and try for the brass ring.

    The highlight of the trip was traveling down 1 or 9 (can’t remember) and anticipating what huge catch would be hanging outside the fish store in Long Branch! I googled to see if I could find a photo to show my husband. I remember seeing turtles, sharks, and all kinds of “BIG Catches” hanging outside the door.

    What a wonderful memory and thank you to whoever put this site together for people like me to sit and remember times gone by.

    Thank you

    Love these pictures. Do you have any of the old Jackson mansion at the corners of Atlantic and Long Branch Aves?

    Wow — thank you, Gregory for all those amazing memories. I’m so glad I got to grow up in Long Branch. I was born there in 1963 and left in 1982.

    Great memories from the time I lived in LB in the ’60s and ’70s. So many memories from attending Church Street school in ’65-’66 then LBHS. Living in the north was special for me meeting so many new friends coming from Eatontown/Ft. Monmouth. Fantastic post of days gone by
