Keansburg, named for the grandfather of former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean (whose name is pronounced "Kane"), is a bustling burg with intense local pride. Keansburg's big deal was-and still is-the Keansburg Amusement Park. The oldest boardwalk amusement area in New Jersey has been attracting families from New Jersey and New York City since 1900.

Keansburg languished—as so many other Bayshore towns did—until the 1980s, when the all-but-deserted Keansburg Amusement Park and Runaway Rapids Waterpark was re-purchased by the original owners.

It's possible to find excellent real estate values in Keansburg. Population dropped from 11,000 to 10,700 in the most recent census. Median income is $48,500 today, up from $31,800 in 1990. Enrollment in Keansburg's three elementary schools stood at 1,556 in 2001, a gain of 156 students from 1996. About 450 students attend Keansburg High.
