ASBURY PARK - The Jersey shore city best known for Bruce Springsteen may add to its claim to fame.

Asbury Park is considering allowing women to go topless on one of its beaches.

The City Council is expected to consider a proposal Wednesday night to create a topless beach in the city's north end.

The idea is the brainchild of a yoga studio owner who has sunbathed without a top in Europe and Miami. She wants to do it legally here.

Supporters say the topless beach would revitalize tourism in Asbury Park and create a new buzz surrounding the resurgent beach town.

Others worry it would scare away families who have recently started coming back to the once-famous resort.
