The Asbury Park boardwalk is a sight to behold. Beautifully-patterned wood in a herringboned style, it stretches for about a half mile. At either end are arcades, one deserted and skeletal, the other very much in use, glass enclosed with a movie theater. Along the boardwalk are a litany of shops and fast-food booths, all of which face the Atlantic Ocean. But on the water side are not even a handful of sheds for purposes I've yet to figure out (I go there only during the off-season, so I'm guessing they are used for selling beach passes). This one, pretty much right in the middle of the boardwalk, is a small, gray-painted structure with a bright yellow door. It was this door that drew me to it. 
As these pictures show.
