More About Bradley Beach
Bradley Beach is a beautiful shore town located in Monmouth County New Jersey. In 1886, the first school, a two-room structure, was opened in Bradley Beach and in 1880, a post office was established in a little store on Newark Avenue which received mail from Asbury Park. When train service was continued through Bradley Beach, William J. Paynter, one of the early settlers, opened a post office in his general store on Main Street near the Bradley Beach Station, where the mail was then delivered. Local citizens appealed to the New Jersey State Legislature for a referendum to separate Bradley Beach from Neptune Township, and on March 28, 1893 Bradley Beach was incorporated making it one of the youngest municipalities in Monmouth County. Bradley Beach attracts thousands of tourists from New York, Pennsylvania and the City of Newark. Construction of the Garden State Parkway in the 1950’s contributed to the influx of metropolitan area residents seeking a year-round home with the appeal of living by the ocean within an easy commute to their workplace. Today, there is a year-round population of 5,000 that increases to approximately 30,000 during the summer months.
