Lakewood, New Jersey is a township located in Ocean County. Its current population estimate is about 60,000 people.

In the early 1900s, Lakewood was a popular place for New Yorkers to visit in the winter, because it has a unique microclimate which makes it significantly warmer in the winter than surrounding areas. It is home to a lake, and large wooded areas, making it a popular place to visit year-round.

Modernly, portions of Lakewood are designated as Urban Enterprise Zones. These are special areas seen by the state government as being in need of economic development. Businesses are encouraged to open in these Zones through tax and regulatory breaks, and consumers are encouraged to buy goods and services because they have a lower sales tax rate than other parts of the state.
