…check out the release party for Local Magazine Issue 3. We’ve been a huge fan of (and subscriber to) Local Magazine ever since we discovered their first issue on Kickstarter last year. Each issue of Local Magazine is about a different place. Issue 3 is about Asbury Park, New Jersey. Asbury Park has been ranked the sixth best beach in New Jersey. If you have never been to the Jersey Shore – you may be familiar with the name as Bruce Springsteen’s debut album from 1973 is titled Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. Local Magazine digs beyond the beaches and the album covers to share the stories of the people who live in Asbury Park today.
