We bought here, on a recommendation from a friend. The first time I visited to the waterfront, it was love at first sight! I come from a boating family, and the Bayshore lifestyle felt familiar and calming. Keyport is a beautiful and evolving town. There are many great restaurants, shops, yoga classes, a unique gym, a Salt room, Vodka distillery coming soon! You can experience live music, arts, and more. There are so many organizations to join. It may be a small town (just under 1.5 SQ miles and 7k residents) but Keyport is a true Norman Rockwell kind of town. Many neighbors are so friendly. I enjoy walking and taking in the beautiful views of historic homes and the waterfront. The elementary school is improving and (hopefully)continuing on that path. The high school, however, leaves a great deal to be desired. But don't fret, there are other amazing county high schools to try for, including High Technology High(top rated in the nation). It's a great little waterfront town!
Keyport NJ is such an evolving town! I have lived in Keyport for the past 16 years, and in that time the waterfront has been beautifully redone. The waterfront can serve as a great place to walk your dog, fish, jog, hangout, or even attend an "outdoor movie at the park." The School system has consistently improved and outdone itself in the past several years. With a friendly neighborhood feel, Keyport is safe to go for a run, or walk your dog at day or night. Whether you're exploring on the Henry Hudson Trail, or visiting the local skate-park and playground, there's always a fun outdoor activity. Keyport has a great variety of restaurants through the town including Old Glory, McDonagh's Restaurant and Pub, Drew's Bistro, Burlew's Seafood and Steak, and many more. There are also some great spots for a quick bite on the go that you're sure to love including Mike's Giant Sized Submarines, Keyport Fishery, The Keyport Diner, and so much more. Come on down to Keyport and see for yourself!
Keyport lives up to what is locally referred to as the "Pearl of the Bayshore". It is a very quaint town with a fantastic fish market and a vast array of dining options despite its small size. The only downside is it is growing a bit too fast and it feels like the development is trying to push Keyport to be the next Red Bank.
I have been living here 15 years now people are nice the town is small and everyone knows everyone, people who live here are all very helpful ,always feel safe here
What I enjoy about Keyport is the beauty of it. Due to the high school having many clubs (key club, environmental club, art club) that help improve the community aesthetically to the many fun activities held at the waterfront, you can always enjoy a day in Keyport. In the summer, everyone looks forward to the Fireman's Fair. Because of how beautiful the Keyport waterfront is, with its view of New York, it is often that people will visit to take pictures for events such as weddings and prom. Throughout the town, there are stores and restaurants that have gotten great reviews; Nemo's, a small place to get sushi if you're ever in the mood, has provided many with great meals. Though it is on the small side, it is very common that families from towns over visit Keyport for a nice day. If I could change anything about the town, it'd be the amount of litter scattered around. Though it's been worked on, if everyone pitched in, Keyport could be even more of a sight.
An amazing small quaint little town on the Jersey Shore. It's an amazing place to live, with stunning waterfront views of New York, as well as great places to dine.
I love Keyport! the town is cute and the people are nice. the downtown has really turned around over the past decade or so. Walking around on a nice day you see happy middle America; working on their yards, walking their dogs, hanging out with their kids. its location on the water is to be desired and the historic buildings are to be appreciated.
Keyport is a small, quaint town consisting of a square mile of land. Its notable qualities include great restaurants and a beautiful waterfront. There are many antique stores scattered across the town, and with the stores a general appreciation of history. Keyport holds an annual Garden walk that draws in a substantial amount of visitors. The Spanish Festival, Country Jamboree, and the Fireman's Fair are also popular events in town. The public schools could use quite a bit of improvement, however.
The high school and any other school in keyport in not great. The education is slower then most schools in the are. During the summer and warmer weather is the only time you can enjoy keyport.
Not much crime occurs in Keyport - occasionally we may have a drug issue or a fight but nothing that makes me feel uncomfortable or too worried about my safety.
Although my town is extremely small and not wealthy, everyone here knows everyone and we're all friendly. We have great local restaurants and businesses that people travel from all around New Jersey to come to. Our restaurants and bars also overlook our beautiful waterfront and bay. Despite Hurricane Sandy, our town was able to come together and recover in a strong and positive way. We're one big family in Keyport.
It's a great town with the police department right in the middle of it but so many things still happen here that you would think that the police would be taking care of but it still happens.
In the time that I've lived in this area, crime has been extremely minimal. You rarely here police sirens ever, and when you do everything is fine and everyone remains safe. I've never been afraid of exploring the town on my own because the area is so safe, and the police are always incredibly responsive when called on.
Our town has some of the most beautiful Victorian homes from the 1800 and early 1900's. During the Christmas season our town has a trolley that brings people in from other towns to tour our homes.
We are a small town with small schools, but we have great pride in our town. We have a lot of history here and we do a lot of things to bring people into the town, especially our waterfront. We have antique stores, summer concerts, chili cook-offs, flea markets, garden walks and at Christmas we have Christmas house tours of our historical homes.
There is not much serious crime in my neighborhood, I occasionally read about robbery or a drug deal, but not often.
I live in a lovely, small seaside community. The residents are a tight-knit group and the town is always busy and has things for the citizens to do.
