Facts About
Red Bank, NJ

Red Bank has been occupied by indigenous peoples for thousands of years. The area of modern-day Red Bank was the territory of the Algonquian-speaking Lenape Native Americans, also called the Delaware by the English. The Lenape lived in the area between the Navesink River and the Shrewsbury River in an area they called Navarumsunk. The Native Americans traded freely with European settlers from England and the Dutch Republic in the mid-17th century, who purchased land in the area.[25]

Originally part of “Shrewsbury Towne“, Red Bank was named in 1736, when Thomas Morford sold Joseph French “a lot of over three acres on the west side of the highway that goes to the red bank”.[26] English colonists settled Red Bank beginning in the 17th century and it became a center for shipbuilding. Its population grew rapidly after 1809, when regularly scheduled passenger ships were established to serve the route to Manhattan.[25]

By 1844, Red Bank had become a commercial and manufacturing center, focused on textilestanningfurs, and other goods for sale in Manhattan. With the dredging of the Navesink River about 1845, Red Bank became a port from which steamboats transported commuters to work in Manhattan. Red Bank grew in size as a result, and because the Raritan and Delaware Bay Railroad constructed a railway in the town in 1860.[27]

In the 20th century, Red Bank was a strong cultural, economic, and political center in Monmouth County until it was hindered by the economic recession that began in 1987. During this time, its economy, based largely on retail commerce, was in decline, due to a real estate scandal. Local pundits and urban planners referred to the town as “Dead Bank”.[28]

Beginning in approximately 1991, under the New Jersey Development and Redevelopment Law, the borough authorized the creation of the Red Bank RiverCenter to manage redevelopment in what was designated as a special improvement district. RiverCenter retains authority over the management and redevelopment of a defined central business district, which includes Broad Street from the post office to Marine Park and from Maple Avenue to one block east of Broad Street. A number of urban redevelopment projects have taken place, including improved signage, distinctive and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and lighting, a coherent design plan for Main Street and other major thoroughfares, and improving the condition of parking lots with landscaping.[29][30]

The district as originally proposed was larger, to include the commercial areas west of Maple Avenue, including the antique buildings, The Galleria, and Shrewsbury Avenue. But some property owners in this area opposed paying the special assessment. Plans for the larger district advanced but opposition became more rigorous. The proposed district was amended to exclude opponents, and the district that was adopted stops at Maple Avenue.[31]

Red Bank is a noted social and commercial destination, filled with boutiques, designer clothing and home stores, parks, and restaurants. Special events are scheduled throughout the summer, such as the KaBoomFest fireworks on July 3, which attracted as many as 150,000 spectators at its 51st annual event in 2010.[51]

Since the 1950s, Red Bank has held the Annual Red Bank Sidewalk Sale. The 58th Annual Sidewalk Sale was held from July 27 to July 29, 2012,[52] and was seen in “The Sidewalk Stash”, the November 11, 2012 episode of the reality TV series Comic Book Men.[53]

The town is considered a center of artistic activity,[54] and is home to the Monmouth County Arts Council,[55] as well as several art and photography galleries.[56]

The Count Basie Theatre has hosted performers such as Kevin SmithDavid SedarisTracy MorganBob NewhartForeignerAndy WilliamsBrian Setzer, and B.B. King.[57] It is home to Phoenix Productions, a nonprofit community theatre founded in 1988 that puts on large-scale musicals four times a year.[58] The Two River Theater Company opened a large performance space on April 30, 2005, called the Two River Theater.[59] Bruce Springsteen filmed his 2005 VH-1 Storytellers special at the Two River Theater.[60] The Marion Huber Theater, also operated by the Two River Theater Company, is a small black box theater that seats about 100.[61]

 
Whenever the conditions are right, ice boats appear on the Navesink.

Boatingscullingsailing, and fishing are popular outdoor activities in and near Red Bank; in the winter, ice boats sail on the Navesink when it freezes over, as it did in 2009.[62] The Monmouth Boat Club, Marine Park, and the slips of the Molly Pitcher Inn provide access to the Navesink and, from there, Sandy Hook and the Gateway National Recreation Area, the Jersey Shore and the Atlantic Ocean.[63]

Broad Street is one of the borough’s central streets and is known for its lavish Christmas decorations during the holiday season. The street is closed to traffic for a free concert sponsored by Holiday Express, after which the lights are all lit again.[64] Up to 7,000 people attend the shows annually.[65]

Red Bank hosts the Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival in partnership with the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Society. “First Night“, a New Year’s Eve arts and entertainment festival, is a Red Bank event designed to provide an alternative to alcohol-related events.[66]

Each year from 1960 through 2011, a fireworks display was launched from the Navesink River close to Red Bank on July 3, the eve of Independence Day. “KaBoomFest” was held in Marine Park, where local bands and vendors formed a major gathering.[67]
