Margate City NJ


Welcome to Margate

Margate 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.

Near Atlantic 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.
