    The portion of the structure in the photograph was razed several years ago. The main structure is still present, now known as the Jersey Shore Performing Arts Center. The demolished portion was on Lawrence Avenue at Embury Avenue, in Ocean Grove, Neptune Township. The remaining structure is mostly restored. It is at the intersection of South Main Street (State Rt 71) and Main Avenue, in Ocean Grove, Neptune Township.
