Shore Envy: Beachfront beauties on Long Beach Island

Long Beach Island’s Beach Haven community is known as “Queen City.” One look at its Victorian and Edwardian historic district and you’ll see why. A look at some of the higher-end real estate in the borough will also leave you with the sense that it could take a monarch’s wealth to buy property there.
