Little Silver’s points and peninsulas dip into the Shrewsbury River, where shore colonials, private docks, and salt-water marshes freckle the landscape. Due to this unique topography, 43 percent of the town’s properties are considered waterfront. Looking out over the serene waters, one can imagine visitors arriving via steamboat to summer on Little Silver’s coastline in the 1800s. At the same time, John T. Lovett was cultivating land that would become the eastern seaboard’s largest nursery, the town’s major employer, and a buffer from the Depression. Sickles Market, family-run since 1908, is a nod to Little Silver’s agricultural history, and its garden center, gourmet food market, and gift shop is an upscale shopping destination for locals. The historic train station, built in 1889, also spoils Little Silver commuters, offering a direct ride to the city, ample parking, and a Rook location (where customers can text their coffee order ahead). Ranked by NJ Monthly as being the sixth “Top Town” in Monmouth County and having the third “Best High School,” Little Silver is cherished by residents for its family-friendly neighborhoods (many of them shaded by trees that started as seedlings at Lovett’s Nursery), strong sense of community and competitive school district. The Education Foundation of Little Silver, founded in 1995 by parents, has historically funded 80 percent of technology investments in the town schools – its 2013 “Dancing With the Stars” fundraiser alone generated over $60,000.
