Sun and fun in Asbury Park, N.J.
Tillie, a 12-by-25-foot smiling face painted on one side of the Palace Amusements building in Asbury Park, N.J., greets tourists and residents alike. The Palace, an indoor amusement park mentioned in Bruce Springsteen lyrics, is gone but not forgotten. Located at Kingsley Street, between Lake and Cookman avenues, its green exterior bore the words "Skooter" and "Tunnel of Love," and Tillie, a caricature of George C. Tilyou, who founded Steeplechase Park in Brooklyn's Coney Island. AP Photo/Asbury Park Press, file
