Armenian Vanetzis (people born in Van or related to those who are), Van Hotel, Asbury Park, New Jersey, late 1940s or early 1950s; photographer unknown.
Near the Asbury Park boardwalk, Van Hotel was a summer gathering place especially for those from the Tri-State Area of NY, NJ and CT. They came together as a community and enjoyed the beach during the day, and music and dancing at night.
