Pier Village is a stunning beach front neighborhood with stores, restaurants and other walkable amenities located in Long Branch in Monmouth County. From the ashes of a major fire that destroyed Long Branch Pier in 1987, Pier Village has risen into a vibrant walkable community that complements the storied New Jersey shorefront with housing, storefronts and dining experiences. Pier Village is a remarkable achievement that reflects the perseverance and collaboration of the City and the project developer Ironstate Development.
Opened in 2005, Pier Village has played a key part in making Long Branch one of the top beaches along the New Jersey shore, offering an extraordinary and exciting atmosphere to residents, vacationers, and other visitors. Festival Plaza, located in the center of Pier Village, hosts arts & crafts fairs, outdoor movies, and other events open to the greater community. The newly renovated Boardwalk is an inviting destination for beach goers looking to walk, run, or ride a bike.
