NORTH LONG BRANCH The North End remains the kind of place where you can swap fish stories or catch the latest rumors of surf while enjoying all the benefits of modern shopping plazas, some truly fine restaurants — even a popular skate park.
DOWNTOWN The heartbeat of city life for generations, Downtown has a little something for everyone in its eclectic mix of the old and the new — including some ethnic eateries that are genuine “best kept secrets.”

STATION STOP LONG BRANCH The modern NJ Transit rail station stands at a bustling crossroads that includes both the state-of-the-art Monmouth Medical Center complex and the old-world charm of the city’s legendary Italian ristorantes.
A beautiful beachfront setting and seaside promenade combine with a world-class resort hotel and conference center to make the Ocean Place district a destination in itself.
PIER VILLAGE The flagship project of the city’s new era offers much to enjoy, from popular new restaurants to a dazzling array of upscale shops — Pier Village all with plenty of parking and easy access to both the beach and boardwalk promenade.
WEST END Just minutes from Monmouth University, West End pulses with a beat all its own. Home to outdoor concerts, art happenings, antiquing, shopping and some great nightlife, the district has popular restaurants and legendary late-nite eateries.
ELBERON Home to many of the city’s most beautiful homes — in addition to such treasures as lovely Lake Takanassee and the historic Church of the Presidents — the southern most section of Long Branch also boasts a charmingly restored rail station as its centerpiece.
Painting, for me, is the culmination of forty years of art exploration, teaching, and artistic influences. As an artist, art educator, and lifelong resident of the Long Branch area, I continually find inspiration in the beauty of the Jersey shore with its breathtaking landscapes, water views, and beach scenes. I have received recognition for my work over the years including Who’s Who in American Art, solo exhibits at major universities, museums, and galleries in New Jersey, and I’ve been featured in numerous juried and invitational shows. My work hangs in public and private collections thoughout the United States and Canada.
