ASBURY PARK, NJ
-- It's against the law to wear a swim suit on the boardwalk in Asbury Park.
Former Councilwoman Louise Murray is pressing the city council to enforce the ordinance, which was adopted more than 40 years ago.
The ordinance says: "No person clad in bathing attire shall be on the boardwalk or the public walks adjacent thereto."
Murray tells The Star-Ledger of Newark she's worried allowing boardwalk bar and restaurant patrons to wear skimpy attire threatens Asbury's "classy" image.
Changing rooms that once were connected to the beach by tunnels and catwalks disappeared years ago.
On Tuesday, City manager Terence Reidy told the Asbury Park Sun that there will not be a crack-down.
"For the time being, no one is going to get arrested for wearing a bathing suit on the boardwalk," Reidy told the site, adding the ordinance "clearly needs to be re-visited."
