I Was Pleasantly Surprised To Be Called A Quirky Belmar, NJ Nickname
In November I moved to my Belmar condo. Even though it was a cold and snowy winter, it still has been a tremendous five months living off Main St. The location, the businesses, the beach, you can't beat the Belmar lifestyle, it's the best.
I am from Wall Township, so I have been hanging out in Belmar my entire life, but now that I am settled into my new place, I am totally buying into being a Belmar local. Everything from grabbing a thin crust Federici's on 10th pizza pie to surfing in front the Eastern Lines Surf Shop, I have everything I want and need in Belmar.
With that, I was pleasantly surprised to be called a quirky nickname that only Belmar locals know. I have heard this nickname be used only a few times before and this time it was directed towards me.
I was in a work meeting with a couple of new clients, and I told them where I live and what I do. One guy we were doing business with leaned over and called me a Belmartian. There isn't an exact definition for Belmartian, but if I had to guess, it's someone who spends a ton of time in their own world and that world is Belmar. After the guy called me a Belmartion, I laughed. I took it as a compliment!
What would your definition of a Belmartian be? Have you ever been called a Belmartian? Do you think being called a Belmartion is an insult? COMMENT & SHARE!
I put together a list of the 15 places I am extremely thankful for in Belmar. See below!
