Ocean City City Hall is located in Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. The building was built in 1914 and added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 13, 1997. To celebrate its 100th anniversary, it was made the subject of the 2014 Ocean City Seasonal Beach Tag.

In 2012, floodwaters from Hurricane Sandy damaged the first floor of the building, causing the offices to be relocated. The town's city council approved a $1.17 million contract to rebuild and improve the first floor, including improved flood gates, water proofing up to 4 ft (1.2 m) deep, and a new layout that added a public information area and larger bathrooms.[3]
