The community of Brick Township, which has 76,100 people as of 2019, is in Ocean County. Its western border is formed by the Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The village was incorporated on February 25, 1850. After being named Joseph Brick, the founder of Bergen Iron Works and a prominent local figure, it was reincorporated on February 7, 1876.
Brick Township was formerly a rural-resort community up until the 1950s. It has since become a bedroom community of New York City, Philadelphia, and Newark due to its low housing costs.
