Manasquan is a borough in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 5,897,[8][9][10] reflecting a decline of 413 (-6.5%) from the 6,310 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 941 (+17.5%) from the 5,369 counted in the 1990 Census.[19]

The borough's name is of Lenape origin, "Man-A-Squaw-Han", meaning "stream of the island of squaws".[20] Manasquan, Maniquan, Mannisquan, Manasquam, Squan, and Squan Village are variations on the original pronunciation and spelling. The meaning has also been interpreted as "an island with enclosure for squans."[21]

Manasquan was formed as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on December 30, 1887, from portions of Wall Township, based on the results of a referendum held the previous day.[22]

New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Manasquan as its 22nd best place to live in its 2008 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.[23]

At an annual reorganization meeting held in the beginning of January, the board selects one of its members to serve as Director and another as Deputy Director.[51] As of 2014, Monmouth County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Lillian G.

Community[edit]

The Manasquan Boardwalk is largely quiet after Labor Day, as seen in this comparative shot facing north, taken in mid-July (left) and late September (right).

Due to its location bordering the Atlantic Ocean, the population of Manasquan increases dramatically in the summer months as tourists flock to the beach.

The Manasquan Inlet provides surfers with waves that are corralled, refracted and enlarged by the jetty protruding out into the Atlantic Ocean. The Manasquan Inlet, reopened in 1931, is the northern terminus of the inland portion of the Intracoastal Waterway.[65]

Manasquan has a downtown area with many small businesses. Algonquin Arts Theatre has shows and movies that play throughout the year. It is a historic 540-seat theatre, built in 1938 as a movie house but converted to a professional live performance space in May 1994.[66][67]

The demolition of traditional beach bungalows and their replacement with much larger single-family dwellings has helped turn Manasquan into a year-round community.[68] The decrease in tourism and rise in residency can be attributed to the decline of once popular tourist destinations. Manasquan no longer has a 24-hour diner or a miniature golf course, and has lost many of the bars once located in its borders. During the summer months, the local bar and party scene overwhelm the area between Brielle Road and Main Street from the bridges to the ocean, especially with local bars - Leggetts and The Osprey - contributing greatly to the amount of party goers in the town.

The Firemans' Fair occurs every July/August. The fair is the largest source of funds for Manasquan Volunteer Engine Company #2 and dates back to 1974, though it was on a decade-long hiatus from the late 1990s, with the week-long festivities in 2011 were expected to draw 30,000 attendees.[69]

Manasquan was home to the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA), the largest registry of pedigreed cats in the world, until 2010.[70]

Transportation[edit]

New Jersey Transit offers rail service at the Manasquan station[71] on the North Jersey Coast Line.[72] Passengers can travel south to Point Pleasant Beach and Bay Head or north to points such as Belmar, Long Branch, Newark, Hoboken Terminal and Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. New Jersey Transit provides bus transportation between Manasquan and Philadelphia on the 317 route and local service on the 830 route.[73]

The Garden State Parkway is the nearest major highway. Route 71 runs through the borough.

Education[edit]

The Manasquan Public Schools serve students from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. Schools in the district (with 2010-11 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics[74]) are Manasquan Elementary School[75] with 682 students in grades K-8 and Manasquan High School[76] with 986 students in grades 9-12.[77] In addition to students from Manasquan, the district's high school also serves public school students from Avon-by-the-Sea, Belmar, Brielle, Lake Como, Sea Girt, Spring Lake, and Spring Lake Heights, who attend Manasquan High School as part of sending/receiving relationships with their respective districts.[78][79] The two Manasquan public school buildings are across from each other on Broad Street, with Board of Education offices next door to the high school.[80]
