Asburyy Park.jpg
For most, hearing the name Asbury Park brings up the Jersey Shore experience created by Bruce Springsteen. His eloquent descriptions of life in the mid-seventies  have brought notarity to New Jersey and Asbury Park for the last two decades. Beginning back in 1893 Asbury Park was created as a resort town for the people of New York City and Philadelphia. During its heyday,  there was no better place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Featuring one and half miles of some of the most beautiful beachfront in New Jersey, Asbury Park was a prime tourist destination. However, the depression and World War Two had a devastating effect on Asbury Park, and this tiny seaside town slowly began to deteriorate into what most of us remember from the Bruce Springsteen songs we all loved so much. Flash forward to today; Asbury Park is rejuvenated and growing. All of those famous boardwalk spots as well as the city like streets are not only being renovated, but there is a conscious effort to rebuild in the same style that once made this place the prime destination for people trying to get away from the big city. Asbury Park New Jersey is stepping into the new millennium with a bang. Beginning in 2007 there has been considerable pushes not only reinvent this small town on the shore, but to make sure it holds onto its rich heritage.The beautiful Victorian architecture is being brought back in order to give the feel of days gone by.  Single family homes, townhouses, condos, vacant land and commercial properties are being renovated and built on, pushing full steam ahead with the revitalization. Beautiful oceanfront and lakefront homes and commercial opportunities are available.  Known for nightlife and entertainment this area is still a hub for local talent, with places like the famous Stone Pony still in existence,  boardwalk hot spots with great food and live entertainment every weekend and now the revitalized downtown area with zagat rated restaurants, and cafes with open mic nights for local talent to perform. So, if you are looking to be a part of the rebuilding of a once popular resort town, where New Jersey trains run daily from New York City and Philadelphia for a convenient commute and you have a love for the Jersey Shore, Asbury Park may offer you the lifestyle you’re looking for.

  If you are considering moving to the New Jersey shore, and are in search of a small town atmosphere with plenty of outdoor activities for the entire family to enjoy then Bradley Beach might be a wonderful place to retire, raise a family, buy a summer home or start a business in the downtown area. Legend has it that Captain William Kidd once buried treasure on the site of what is now Bradley Beach and that treasure was never recovered.  However, the real treasures of this little seaside town are its small year round population of just under 5000 people, and it's beautiful oceanfront.   xxUnlike many East coast cities Bradley Beach, due its small population, boasts just one large neighborhood instead of multiple neighborhoods. Bradley Beach residents have a sense of community that is rarely seen in larger cities.  Every person in Bradley Beach considers everyone else their neighbor. There is pride in this peaceful community which makes it a great place to call home.    The school district is small educating children from kindergarten to 7th grade.  Grades 9-12 attend Asbury Park high school or may apply for attendance at other high schools in the area. Like many tourist areas, Bradley Beach has a number of notable shopping options in the downtown district, as well as a variety of dining experience and those who find employment in Bradley Beach itself usually work in the tourist trade or service industry.     Despite it's small year round population, Bradley Beach's population swells dramatically during the summer months to about 30,000.   Tourists come for the wonderful beaches, the great shopping opportunities, and the fine dining that can be found here. One of the best places for both locals and visitors during the summer month is Bradley Beach Park.  This is a gated park right on the boardwalk where parents can enjoy a magnificent view of the ocean while their children play.  Right next door to the park is a mini golf facility offering even more fun for families.  Of course, there is also boating, swimming, and other water activities as well as a  seaside pavilion that offers a number night time concerts. You can fish from the jetty, go on a deep sea fishing excursion or just fish in the surf after the beach goers have left for the day.  With its number of colorful parks, beach activities and the beautiful traditional tree lined streets  Bradley Beach may be perfect for you. From sunrise to well after dark, Bradley beach has something for everyone.

Housing is quite expensive but less so than in other Monmouth County seaside areas. If you are considering moving to the New Jersey Shore, and want to find the ideal place to enjoy an active outdoor lisfestyle,  then you may want to consider calling Bradley Beach your home.

Sea Girt New Jersey Small Town Living On The Jersey Shore


 

  Sea Girt, New Jersey formed in March of 1917, isn’t often a place most people think of when trying to decide where they would like to move. That’s probably because, according to the 2000 United States census, the population was just over 2000. This is considerably smaller than your average town, which is also what makes it such an endearing place to live.

 

Since the borough reports a higher than average median income than the rest of the state, the homes that you will find here are reflective of that. Large, spacious homes on tree lined streets, luxury oceanfront estates that border the coast and a small town businesses district that operates year round.

 

Sea Girt Elementary School serves to educate grades kindergarten through eighth and is a Blue Ribbon school. It is one of only four in the entire state of New Jersey to have received this recognition from the United States Department of Education, and it is the highest level to be presented to an American school. High School students can choose from Manasquan High School or Private schools in neighboring towns.

 

If you’re looking for something to do in your spare time, and spending the day on the beach isn’t on your agenda, you can always head out to the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey, a not-for-profit museum set up to help keep the military heritage of New Jersey alive. This museum is the home of the Intelligent Whale, a hand-cranked submarine from the 1800s, among many other military artifacts relevant to the state. The Sea Girt Lighthouse is another glorious site located in Sea Girt. The Lighthouse began operation in 1896 and is now one of only twenty remaining lighthouses in New Jersey. The boardwalk offers an incredible panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean that starts at the Historic Sea Girt Lighthouse and runs to the southern end of this charming town. Sea Girt also boasts a number of nightspots, pubs and restaurants for a evening out in town.  A host of recreational activities to keep the entire family occupied. Crescent Park, named such for the crescent-shaped road that encircles one half of it, is home to tennis courts where you can practice your back swing when you’re not out exploring the remainder of the park. It’s easy to see by looking at this quaint little Irish-American borough why it is that people would choose to make their homes here
