St. Michael's Church
Long Branch, Monmouth County

Driving south on Ocean Avenue you will come across this exceptionally fine late Catholic Gothic church, built in 1886. Whereas so many of the Catholic churches in the state are located on city lots, making difficult to taken in the entire church, this sits alone and the perspective from all directions is a delight.
