BOOK REVIEW – Historic Photos of Jersey Shore, by Joe Czachowski

Long before the gay community re-discovered Asbury Park, there was a rich and often elegant style of life up and down the coast of New Jersey. Historic Photos of Jersey Shore is a coffee table book capturing the bygone times in hundreds of vintage, black and white photos. From the boardwalks to the amusements, the homes both lavish and modest, churches and public buildings, events and street scenes, it has it all.
