Long Branch

The City of Long Branch holds a population of 33,066, has a land area of 5.10 square miles and is located in the north coast area of the county. The Elberon section of Long Branch, nicknamed the Newport of the Jersey Shore at the turn of the century, is still known for its grand Victorian and Gothic architecture. Long Branch contains the most varied range of housing types of any town in the county, including single-family homes, oceanfront high-rise condominiums, townhomes and apartments. In recent years there has been large-scale redevelopment in Long Branch’s oceanfront area. The city has received designation as an Urban Enterprise Zone from the state of New Jersey, which provides incentives to local businesses and their customers.
