Yes, it is gone. I passed it one day and saw that they set it on fire to let the fire companies do their training...

Great shots !
Thanks, brings back the good ole days for me.
Cruising the circuit was what we did-no one had a care in the world,
just how much air was in my slicks !

They just re-opened the old Xanadu Club under the name Circuit. I would think they were referring to what the area was called back in the day....

Ship Wheel is now a nice restuarant.
Stone Pony is still the Stone Pony
Beach House as in Point Pleasant Beach on NJ Ave is now Condos.( I grew up on that street.)
Headliner is still the Headliner but really expanded.
The Royal Manor? WOW! Now that is going back!
The Royal Manor has been leveled for some time now and just an empty lot ever since....
Casablanca........Townhouses
Trade Winds also now leveled for Condos...
Remember the Barber Shop ?

I rode through today on the Harley.....Looks like some new construction is happening. It would be nice to see Asbury restored.
