Haven’t got a date? Well, we have the place for you to hang out this summer weekend.
Seaside Heights has more single residents, by percentage, than nearly any other town in the Garden State. Reporters at NJ.com crunched the numbers this week, and while most of Ocean County had higher-than-average ratios of singled to married residents, Seaside Heights topped them all.
A full 78 percent of Heights residents are single, compared to low percentages in Lavallette and Seaside Park. In Toms River, 49 percent of residents were single, the same percentage as Brick. Up the island, just 37 percent of Bay Head’s residents aren’t hitched, lower than Point Pleasant Beach’s 47 percent.
Seaside Heights’ high number of singles is tied for first in the state with Asbury Park. Salem, Camden and New Brunswick – likely because it’s a college town – also made the top five.
