Welcome

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.

All brush from the storm(s) have been picked up in all zones. There should be nothing in the street that could wash away and clog storm drains. If you have brush in the street you are in violation so we ask that remove it to curbside OR you can drop it off at the Borough Garage M-F, 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. The next round of brush and leaf collection by zone will begin October 5th followed by just leaf pickup by zone on November 2. We thank you for your cooperation.

PLAYGROUNDS RE-OPENING EFFECTIVE JULY 2, 2020

In accordance with Executive Order No. 133 and 157 Atlantic Highlands will be re-opening certain parks and recreation areas.  Playgrounds, tennis courts, skatepark and basketball courts in the harbor and in neighborhood pocket parks will open.  The Bayshore / Henry Hudson Trail remains open.  We continue to ask that you walk to the trail as parking in the harbor is not encouraged and will be very limited as per the Governors Order.  

As New Jersey makes continued progress in its fight against COVID-19, it is appropriate to ensure that ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS residents can safely enjoy outdoor recreation, with reasonable restrictions that limit the spread of COVID-19, as a way to enhance physical and mental health, while maintaining the overall social distancing and mitigation requirements in place to protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents.  

We ask that you use caution, not fear as we’re all in this together !

Please see attached flyer for details

  • Staff members required to wear masks.
  • Tables spaced at least 6 feet apart.
  • Enhanced sanitation.
  • Guests placing orders only at a table and staffers bringing food and beverages only to tables.
  • Patrons barred from walking around while eating.
  • Limiting seating to a maximum of 8 customers per table — unless from an immediate family or the same household
  • Encouraging reservations for greater control of customer traffic.
  • Requiring customers to provide a phone number if making a reservation to facilitate contact tracing.

A message from the Atlantic Highlands Police Department:

When a crisis affects the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands uses Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as its Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls (along with an email and/or text if you desire) to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls that you receive will have the caller ID listed as Borough of Atlantic Highlands or AHNJ for text messages.

Whether residents need to be informed of fire hydrant testing, a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach our residents with news.
