Bradley Beach

On March 13, 1893, Bradley Beach was incorporated, based on the results of a referendum held on March 6, 1893. It was the first location in the United States to charge sea bathers for beach access when it began minting its own tin badges starting in 1929. Bradley Beach was named for James A. Bradley, the developer responsible for the creation of the Bradley Beach and Asbury Park.
