About Harvey Cedars Borough
Harvey Cedars is a tiny borough located along the barrier island of Long Beach Island, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, and part of the Atlantic Coast region of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. It has a land area smaller than half a square mile and has fewer than 400 year-round residents. It’s a popular tourist destination with a much higher seasonal population.
Harvey Cedars has a long maritime history, starting with whaling in the mid 1600’s. The tourist industry started in earnest in the 1900’s, and the borough has recovered several times from devastation from major hurricanes in 1944, 1962 and now Sandy.
