A quiet community not far from the Jersey Shore, Farmingdale has much to offer growing families and individuals who want the best of both worlds--a rural, small-town environment with easy access to several major urban centers and all Monmouth County attractions. The borough boasts a historic Main Street with restaurants and specialty shops, as well as peaceful and safe residential neighborhoods.
