Only 40 minutes from Manhattan along the southern edge of the Navesink River, Red Bank offers gourmet shops and coffeehouses, delightful cafes, specialty shops and a lively nightlife.
The name "Red Bank" is attributed to the red soil throughout the area. In the 19th century, the town served as a popular port for the shell fishing industry and for local farmers transporting their crops.
Contrary to popular belief, Red Bank is not just an antiquer’s and shopper’s town—although if shopping is your bag, you’ll be in heaven! Music is a big part of the community, as evident by the plentitude of record shops and live music venues. There are plenty of other activities as well.
