Old gas station, 1940s. This service station at Ocean and Riverdale Avenues (near the Long Branch border) dates to October 1924 when property owner, J. William Jones, installed two 20,000-gallon above-ground gas tanks. Although the area is zoned for business, the snooty Monmouth Beach Association opposed the plan so Jones obtained a NJ Superior Court order to operate. Jones was a savvy city politico — serving on the Long Branch Commission for decades including two terms as city mayor (1928-1932 and 1948-1952). Born in Long Branch the son of school teachers, he died in December 1958. Nearly a century later the business still operates — recently renovated and reopened. Today it is a Liberty Petroleum fuel station.

His dad’s 50-year NFL career included stints as defensive coordinator for the NY Giants and a Dallas Cowboys scout. He died in February 2018. Born in 1966, Jason also played QB for the Cowboys and the Giants and starred at Princeton University. In 2010, he became the Cowboy’s Head Coach where he built a solid record — winning three NFC East division titles and posting a 85-67 record. Jason was a favorite of the Cowboy’s billionaire owner Jerry Jones right up until his dismissal in 2020.
