Asbury Park, a small seaside city in New Jersey, was famous for its exceptional hospitality and tourism boom in the early 20th century. In fact, it was known around the United States as the "town without a frown". All twelve thousand men, women and children of the community were made members of the Asbury Park "Glad Hands Society", which prided itself on providing hospitable welcomes to visitors from around the country and around the globe.
