Margate City NJ
City, New Jersey's popular seashore resort and charming
year round residential community, is located in Atlantic
County on the Garden State's southern shore.
City, Margate is nestled on Absecon Island between the
municipalities of Margate and Longport, south of America's
Favorite Playground. Originally part of Egg Harbor Township,
it was called South Atlantic City--from Washington Avenue
to Jackson Avenue--the ocean to the bay. It broke from
Egg Harbor Township in 1885 as the Borough of South
Atlantic City, and in 1897 changed its name to the City
of South Atlantic City. In 1909 the name was changed
to Margate City. Margate, literally meaning "Gateway
to the Sea" honors Great Britain's venerable seaside
resort of the same name.
