Welcome to Sea Bright! Here, NJ 36 is known as Ocean Avenue. It runs south along a narrow strip of land between the Shrewsbury River and the Atlantic Ocean. There are no major cross streets here, but there are a lot of crosswalks providing access to the beach on the left. There is nowhere to park around here for those who don't live in the area, making this a de facto private beach.
