Atlantic Highlands is a small Victorian town on the New Jersey shore overlooking lower New York Bay, with Manhattan in the distance. Its hills include the highest point on the eastern seaboard south of Maine.

Many of Atlantic Highlands' Victorian homes have been preserved and restored, adding to the charm of small-town living and providing interesting walking tours in the historic district.

News & Announcements

New Zone Map - By Street (pdf)
Residents, I feel the need to clarify some confusions with the new Zone map. The Map that is in the calendar and on the website is the Borough’s election district map. It was the best graphic to generally, give everyone an idea of what zone they are in but it is the actual listing that determines which Zone you are in. If the name of your street is listed under Zone 4, even though your house may be located in Zone 2 on the map, you are in zone 4. The Zones are designated by streets, not by the boundaries outlined on the map. I hope this clears up any confusion.

Dwayne M. Harris, Municipal Clerk

Health Dept seeking info about Aberdeen puppies (pdf)
The Township of Aberdeen is seeking information from anyone who may have adopted or privately purchased pitbull puppies from the Cliffwood section of Aberdeen within the past three weeks. People who have been in contact with these puppies are at risk of contracting the rabies virus, which is fatal without medical treatment within a relatively short time of exposure. If you personally adopted the puppies or observed anyone with a new pitbull puppy, please immediately contact either Holly Reycraft at 732-583-4200 ext. 117 or Brittany Shea at 732-583-4200 ext. 130. Despite being infected with the rabies virus, these puppies may appear and behave normally without exhibiting any symptoms, but they can still transmit the virus to people and other animals.
