“Tillie” Mural Saved from Condemned Palace Amusements Landmark

On June 8, 2004, volunteers removed one of the “Tillie” murals from the Palace Amusements building in Asbury Park, so as to ensure its preservation prior to the demolition of the building. “Tillie” is the nickname of two murals of a grinning figure that were painted on the sides of the Palace Amusements building, and which became icons of the Asbury Park boardwalk.
