Asbury Park, commonly referred to as “Asbury”, is a city in Monmouth County on the Jersey Shore and located at the intersection of State Highways Rt. 66 and Rt. 71. Asbury Park is a fairly large city with a population of around 18,000 and is a little over 1.5 square miles in size. The city is widely known for its rich musical history, nightlife, and award winning restaurants. However, Asbury Park has also struggled with a high crime rate for several years. Drug and gang violence has long been prevalent throughout the city, and by 2004 Asbury Park had gained recognition as one of the most dangerous cities in New Jersey. In recent years, that image has begun to change with Asbury Park undergoing a massive citywide renovation and the crime rate has greatly decreased during the last half a decade.
