Welcome to East Rumson NJ

If Sea Bright merges with Rumson, will they call the town Rumson or Sea Bright or something else? I can imagine Sea Bright property owners would be all for changing the name of their town to Rumson. The jump in properties values in old Sea Bright would be astronomical. I'm surprised Sea Bright never changed its name to East Rumson for that reason alone. Fair Haven could then change its name to West Rumson.

"SEA BRIGHT - Though he is not Charles Dickens, borough resident Andrew Mencinsky has authored a proposal to merge his hometown and its neighbor across the river.

To Mencinsky, the result could bring the best of times to both towns and help alleviate taxing conditions that have created the worst of times in New Jersey.

In Sea Bright, Mencinsky pitched his idea to officials, including Mayor Jo-Ann Kalaka-Adams, during the Borough Council's Oct. 17 meeting."

Fair Haven is too proud of its identity to become "West Rumson" Sea Bright too, for that matter. The unique character of these towns will be the biggest obstacle to mergers. People like that identity. Some people really identify with their town: I read some guy's blog called "Little Silvered".
