Palace Casino - Carousel House – Heating Plant

Palace Casino - Carousel House – Heating Plant

106 Asbury Avenue, Asbury Park, New Jersey, United States

 

The Palace Casino & Carousel House are part of the Asbury Park Boardwalk, circa 1929 by architect Warren and Wetmore.

 

The Old Heating Plant was the central steam heating plant. It produced steam heat that was piped through underground tunnels between the boardwalk and Ocean Avenue. The steam was used to heat the heating plant, the Casino, all of the boardwalk pavilions and Convention Hall, plus the pavilions north of Convention Hall up to 8th avenue.

 

The Art Deco style is that interesting combination of Moorish, Venetian and Egyptian that we can see through the architectural structures in Asbury Park.
