Beach Haven is a borough in Ocean County, New Jersey, United States, that is located on Long Beach Island (LBI) and borders the Atlantic Ocean. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 1,170,[10][11][12] reflecting a decline of 108 (-8.5%) from the 1,278 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 197 (-13.4%) from the 1,475 counted in the 1990 Census.[21]

Beach Haven was incorporated as a Borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on November 11, 1890, from portions of Eagleswood Township, based on the results of a referendum held five days earlier.[22]

It was ranked the ninth-best beach in New Jersey in the 2008 Top 10 Beaches Contest sponsored by the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium.[23]

History[edit]

Beach Haven, known on Long Beach Island as the "Queen City,"[24] is a late 19th-century beach-front resort originally established in 1873 to house wealthy summer residents from Philadelphia. Although some of the major structures, including several hotels and a boardwalk, were lost to storms in the 1940s including the Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944,[25] a large portion of the town retains its Victorian and Edwardian character. The Beach Haven Historic District listed in the New Jersey and the National Register of Historic Places in the early 1980s, encompasses the most intact buildings at the core of the resort.[26]

Geography[edit]

Beach Haven is located at 39°34′34″N 74°15′06″W / 39.576031°N 74.251791°W / 39.576031; -74.251791 (39.576031,-74.251791). According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 2.320 square miles (6.010 km2), of which, 0.978 square miles (2.534 km2) of it is land and 1.342 square miles (3.476 km2) of it (57.84%) is water.[2][3]

Attractions[edit]

Beach Haven is home to multiple attractions, including the only amusement park on the island: Fantasy Island,[27] off-Broadway quality professional equity theatre: Surflight Theatre,[28] cabaret-style sing-for-your dessert entertainment: Showplace Ice Cream Parlour, Bay Village Shopping Center, the Long Beach Island Museum[29] and many distinctive shops and restaurants, including Tucker's Restaurant, noted in Philadelphia magazine as the number one restaurant on Long Beach Island. The first incident in the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916 took place at the east end of Engleside Avenue.[30][31] The following series of attacks along the Jersey Shore became the basis for the book Jaws, by Peter Benchley. There is also a water park, Thundering Surf, and numerous miniature golf facilities. Veteran's Bicentennial Park, in the heart of Beach Haven, hosts many summer concerts, flea markets and parades, and an open park area for general recreation. As the island is only a few blocks wide, the beach and the bay are readily accessible from anywhere in Beach Haven. Pavilions could be found at Fifth and Pearl Streets, both of which were washed away by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012[32] and subsequently rebuilt in June 2013.[33] Beach badges are required and can be purchased at Borough Hall or the Centre Street badge booth.[34]
