Nestled in between Margate City to the north and Ocean City to the south lies the borough of Longport, New Jersey. Longport is located on Absecon Island along with Margate City, Ventnor City and Atlantic City. Longport got its name from M. Simpson McCullough who in 1882 purchased the land from James Long and who later decided to honor the previous owner and friend. The land on which the borough currently sits is much smaller then when Mr. McCullough purchased it in 1882. Due to Atlantic storms and erosion, the first street in town is eleventh. From the years 1900 through 1916 the streets one through ten all washed away.
