Asbury Park has lost so many landmarks over the past 20 years and it is a very sad statement to a once historical town. The Stephen Crane House is one bright spot. I am happy that it has been saved.

I attended a vegan taco party event at the Stephen Crane House. The food was splendid and our Tour Guide was extremely knowledgeable. I didn't find the neighborhood to be "very dangerous". I have to say the display of Stephen Crane's keyboard was just fantastic.
