"Asbury Lanes' life began in the 1920s as an auto garage until the late 1930s when a family, The Eames, moved their bowling business from downtown Asbury Park into the garage. Their 8 lanes were expanded to 16 complimented by a sandwich counter. It's survived a fire and stood through countless hurricanes. It was witness to The Morro Castle disaster, the riots in the 70s, Asbury Park's decline and then triumphant return. It has been a home to local bowling league tournaments, crowds cruising The Circuit, and the hundreds of bands that took to the stage over the recent years. There is no other place like it in the country. "
