Years ago Keansburg was the place to vacation. People would, rent or buy bugalows for their summer getaways from the city. It is a bayshore community, people live there year round now. There are marinas, the boardwalk, free beaches and you are within 20 minutes of the ocean. If you find something bayside, you do have some of the best views of NYC across the bay...I guess it also depends on where you are coming from. People in the bayshore area tend to go a little further south for their summer vacations. Good Luck!
