Highlands, New Jersey

Highlands is a small little borough located in one of the most northeastern points of Monmouth County, New Jersey. It is bordered by Atlantic Highlands to the north, Sea Bright to the south and Middletown to the west. This small borough, which covers just over one square mile, is actually located directly on the water. Combine that with the fact that it is extremely convenient to commute in and out of New York City because of the Seastreak Ferries, it has become a very desirable location for people to call home. Also, unlike most towns in the area, Highlands is not what most would consider a “summer town”, it has solid year round population. For more information about the Borough of Highlands please checkout their website.
