Long Branch, NJ:  Birthplace of The Boss

The city of Long Branch earns major cool points for witnessing the entrance into the world of one of rock and roll’s most famous Jersey boys, Bruce Springsteen. As if that’s not enough, Long Branch is also where Bruce penned the classic anthem, “Born to Run.”  Previously known as the “Hollywood of the East” and heralded as America’s First Seaside Resort, Long Branch has a rich history as a favorite vacation destination.

Finding an Apartment in Long Branch

The apartment search in Long Branch can be arduous, primarily because determining which of the city’s neighborhoods best suits your lifestyle can be a challenge.

How much will it cost?

Long Branch is a beachfront community so renters should be prepared to pay for what they get: access to a surprisingly uncrowded beach, a brand-new boardwalk and an unbeatable county park that covers 33 stunning, recreational acres.

When to rent:

Seasonal turnover is a big deal in Long Branch. By avoiding shopping for your rental in the key months, you can pat yourself on the back for dodging jacked up rates just before you sign your lease.

What you need:

The process of renting in Long Branch is consistent with most other places in the U.S. While it can be time-consuming, it is pretty standard and involves nothing out of the ordinary. Be prepared to fill out a lengthy application, undergo a credit check and fork over a security deposit. Other factors, like whether you need a month-to-month lease or have pets should be discussed directly with the landlord.

Long Branch Neighborhoods

With a population of 30,719 and as one of the Jersey Shore’s largest cities, Long Branch comprises several distinct neighborhoods, each of which has its own charms. A quick visit to the area should help you decide one way or another regarding apartment rentals. Notable Long Branch communities include:

Beachfront North and South: Home of the popular Pier Village, this area has a little bit of everything. There are boutiques to restaurants to luxury apartments for rent. There are plenty of townhouses for rent, low rise condos and rental apartments.

North End: This sleepy bedside community is beloved by its residents, who are willing to pay higher rates for apartment rentals in exchange for the slower pace of life--and traffic--of living here.

West End and Elberon: If you always have to be where the action is, then seek and you will find it right here. Considered “the place to be,” the West and and Elberon offer everything from new-ish Colonials to modest Victorians to waterfront mansions.

Downtown: Thanks to the city’s redevelopment initiatives, Long Branch’s downtown is well on its way to becoming a thriving arts district.

Branchport: Rents are reasonable in this part of town. Choose from less expensive studio apartments to one bedroom apartments to two bedroom apartments and beyond. 

East Long Branch: East Long Branch offers a diverse mix of housing. You can enjoy the nautical scenery and unique beach-y pace of life in this popular part of town.

Living in Long Branch

Most neighborhoods in Long Branch are sufficiently walkable, and the boardwalk renovation makes for an exceptionally pleasant stroll. However, getting to the world outside of Long Branch--which many people need to do daily in this commuter heavy town-- requires a car. New Jersey Transit connects Long Branch to both New York City and New Jersey’s northern parts on the North Jersey Coast Line. Located just three blocks from the beach, the main train station is joined by a second station in Elberon. There is also local bus transportation via New Jersey Transit.

Residents of Long Branch enjoy life in their idyllic beach side hamlet, with plenty of opportunities for recreation, shopping, arts and education and nightlife.
