I will be relocating to Newark NJ and I want to know the closest beach area or a great place to live. I need a studio or 1 bedroom apartment. Any information would be greatly appreciated

You can live in Newark and take the North Jersey Coast line to the beach its about an 1.30 by Train or 2hrs by car. There are lots of decent to slightly luxury apartments and studios. Although if you want Studios look at Jersey City which is right next to Newark.....

The coastal beach starts from Sandy Hook and goes South from there. Trains take a while since there are a few stops along the way. Driving would probably be about 45 mins to an hour more or less during medium traffic.

I know someone who works in Newark and lives in Belmar. They alternate between driving and taking the train. It's definitely do-able. It's a lot easier than working in NYC and living in the Shore area.

Consider looking in Red Bank (although not a beach area, you would need to go further south), the commute by express train is just under an hour.
