This petition is brought to you by Save Tillie, an all volunteer organization comprised of 1,000 friends of Asbury Park. Founded in July of 1998, our original goal of saving the Palace\'s iconic Tillie image expanded in 1999 to an attempt to save the entire Palace. Under our leadership, the Palace won an honored place on the New Jersey and National registers of Historic Places. Demolition of the Palace in 2004 came over the objections of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Asbury Park Historical Society, Preservation New Jersey, and Save Tillie. In the end, we saved more than 125 internal artifacts from the Palace and the Tillie mural from the Cookman Avenue wall, and through our work the Bumper Car murals on the Lake Avenue facade were also removed to storage. http://www.Savetillie.com/ To see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band with Tillie in 1973, click here: www.tinyurl.com/5nhd2u www.tinyurl.com/647vuo A Tillie Removal Video
