asbury park "largely gay"? not by a longshot. maybe 5 yrs ago - now its the most diverse town on the shore - young couples like myself, older folks, and families make the majority.

I was just there for a volleyball tournament last year and it is every bit "largely gay". I'm shocked to see Asbury Park featured for anything. It is not a very nice beach asthetically. Once you get to the other side of the boardwalk, it looks like the remnants of a bombed city. There are countless unfinished construction projects. It is just not a pleasant place. For my money, I'll take Point Pleasant every time.

Cape May has been a resort well before the 1900's and in fact was practically rebuilt after a fire in 1778 destroyed 30 acres of the town. That is why there are so many Victorian homes since that was the prevailing building style of that era.
