About this title


In days gone by, Long Branch was filled with the mansions of millionaires, a business district bustling with commerce, and an oceanfront dotted with glittering gambling casinos and the finest hotels. At the dawn of the 20th century, everyone flocked to Ocean Avenue, either as a resident or visitor just taking in the sights. Some of these people were well-known actors, politicians, and business tycoons of the day. Others were day-trippers here to enjoy the cool breezes and summer entertainment that Long Branch had to offer. Some local citizens worked in the city, helping to maintain its reputation as the premier summer resort in the nation―a distinction bestowed by Mary Todd Lincoln when she visited in the summer of 1861. Many people came to Long Branch for many reasons, but all of them had one thing in common, the important role they played in its proud past.

About the Author:

The history of Long Branch is displayed here in the form of postcards, photographs, oral history, and narration collected and written by Sharon Hazard. Strong family ties to Long Branch and a conviction to share its memories were the seeds from which this book grew. Hazard has written feature stories for many newspapers and magazines. She was the photo editor for two books on New Jersey history.
