Brass Ring



“Life's just a merry-go-round. Come on up. You might get a brass ring.”

Mae West
These pictures were taken in Asbury Park,New Jersey.
When I was a child there was a beautiful Merry-go-round in this building. It was always a thrill to lean off the horse as much as possible to try and grab those rings. If you got the gold ring you got a free ride. Asbury has seen some bad days since then. However, things are starting to change. I urge anyone in the area to visit the boardwalk. The Paramount Theater is open and so is the Convention Hall. Everything is being restored and many new shops have opened along the boardwalk.
