Long Branch is a seaside town that has long been a popular vacation resort. Throughout its storied history, it has attracted families and friends as well as ailing Presidents who hoped the soothing environment would improve their health.
When Hurricane Sandy struck the area in October of 2012 Long Branch was one of the affected communities. Despite a devastated boardwalk area and local flooding problems, the people of Long Branch were able to rebound. Today the damage has been repaired and life in the town has returned to normal.
