Asbury Park: A Story of Hope

The Asbury Park Historical Society was happy to participate in the making of Jim McGrorry’s documentary about the comeback of our historic city. McGrorry, who graduated from Ocean Township High School, is currently studying media production at Newbury College in Brookline, MA, where he is enrolled in the honors program.

As part of his final honors thesis, McGrorry created a documentary about his home area, Asbury Park. The film documents Asbury Park’s rich, colorful history, and how the city has emerged as a premiere location on the Jersey Shore over the past decade or so. Please take some time to watch his documentary; we’re sure you will enjoy it.
