Red Bank is a borough in Monmouth County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. Incorporated in 1908, the community is on the Navesink River, the area's original transportation route to the ocean and other ports. Red Bank is in the New York metropolitan area and is a commuter town of New York City.[17] As of the 2020 United States census, the borough's population was 12,936,[7][8] an increase of 730 (+6.0%) from the 2010 census count of 12,206,[18][19] which in turn reflected an increase of 362 (+3.1%) from the 11,844 counted in the 2000 census.[20] In the 2020 census, Red Bank was the fourth-most-densely populated municipality in Monmouth County.[8]

Red Bank was formed as a town on March 17, 1870, from parts of Shrewsbury Township. On February 14, 1879, Red Bank became Shrewsbury City, part of Shrewsbury Township; this lasted until May 15, 1879, when Red Bank regained its independence. On March 10, 1908, Red Bank was formed as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature and was set off from Shrewsbury Township.[21][22] The borough was named for the red soil along the Navesink River.[23][24]

Downtown Red Bank is notable for its many local and well-known businesses including Garmany, Urban Outfitters, and Tiffany & Co.[25] on and around Broad Street. Many annual events happen throughout the year, including the International Beer, Wine & Food Festival,[26] a long-running sidewalk sale,[27] a farmers' market,[28] an indie film festival,[29] the Red Bank Guinness Oyster Festival,[30] a Halloween parade,[31] and a holiday town lighting.[32]


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.[33]

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".[34] 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.[33]

By 1844, Red Bank had become a commercial and manufacturing center, focused on textiles, tanning, furs, 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.[35]

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".[36]

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.[37][38]

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.[39]


Downtown Red Bank

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had an area of 2.16 square miles (5.58 km2), including 1.75 square miles (4.52 km2) of land and 0.41 square miles (1.06 km2) of water (18.98%).[1][2]

Red Bank is on the southern bank of the Navesink River in northern Monmouth County, New Jersey. It is about 24 miles (39 km) due south of the tip of Manhattan and about 25 nautical miles (46 km) to the tip of Manhattan if traveling by water along the Navesink River and through Raritan Bay.

Unincorporated communities, localities and place names partially or completely within the borough include Newmans Corner.[40]

Red Bank is bordered by the Monmouth County municipalities of Fair Haven, Little Silver, Middletown Township, Shrewsbury and Tinton Falls.[41][42][43]


Red Bank has a humid subtropical climate (Cfa).

Arts and culture[edit]

The Count Basie Theatre, named for Count Basie, who was born in Red Bank

Red Bank is a noted social and commercial destination, filled with boutiques, designer clothing and home stores, parks, and restaurants with special events scheduled throughout the year

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,[55] and was seen in "The Sidewalk Stash", the November 11, 2012 episode of the reality TV series Comic Book Men.[56]

The town is considered a center of artistic activity,[57] and is home to the Monmouth County Arts Council,[58] as well as several art and photography galleries.[59]

Many venues in Red Bank have live performances, plays, and movie showings, including Count Basie Theatre, named for Count Basie, who was born in Red Bank,[60][61] Basie Center Cinemas,[62] and the Two River Theater.[63]

The Count Basie Theatre[60] has hosted performers such as Kevin Smith, Ariana Grande,[64] Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, The Beach Boys, David Sedaris, Tracy Morgan, Bob Newhart, Foreigner, Andy Williams, Brian Setzer, and B.B. King.[65] On April 30, 2005, the Two River Theater Company opened a large performance space, the Two River Theater,[66] which has hosted performers like Hasan Minhaj. Bruce Springsteen filmed his 2005 VH-1 Storytellers special at the theater.[67] Basie Center Cinemas (formerly known as The Marion Huber Theater), also operated by the Two River Theater Company, is a small black box theater that seats about 100.[68]

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.[69] Up to 7,000 people attend the shows annually.[70]

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.[71]

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.[72] In 2010, it attracted as many as 150,000 spectators at its 51st annual event.[73]

Musical groups from Red Bank include alternative rock band Young Rising Sons.[74]


In 1998, the Red Bank Armory was converted to an ice rink. It is home to the youth hockey team Red Bank Generals.[75]

The George Sheehan Classic began in 1981 as the Asbury Park 10K Classic and quickly became one of the nation's major road running events. The race moved to Red Bank in 1994 and was renamed in honor of George A. Sheehan, the prominent author, philosopher and area physician. Runner's World magazine named the Classic one of the Top 100 Road Races, and The New York Times named it the Best Memorial Race in New Jersey.[76] The 2012 running, shortened to a 5K race, attracted nearly 1,300 participants.[77]

In January 2018, FC Monmouth announced that Red Bank's Count Basie Park would be the home stadium for the team's inaugural season.[78] The team's owners selected the park based on Red Bank's central location in the county both geographically and in terms of the local economy, along with the fact that the stadium will be easily accessible by car and by public transportation via NJ Transit rail and bus.[79]

Parks and recreation[edit]

Red Bank has eight parks, with one new park being planned as of 2023. The largest is Count Basie Park, which includes baseball fields, basketball courts, playground, track, a small trail along Mohawk Pond, and restrooms. Eastside Park, the only park located east of Broad Street, consists of a playground, soccer field, softball field, basketball court, tennis courts, benches, picnic tables, walking paths, lawn, and restrooms. Along the Navesink River, there are three parks: Marine Park, which consists of a playground, benches, boat basin, picnic tables, lawn, and restrooms; Riverside Gardens Park, which has picnic tables, benches, boardwalk, lawn, and restrooms; and Maple Cove Park, which includes a lawn and kayak launch. Bellhaven Nature Area sits along the Swimming River, which includes a turtle access point, playground, picnic table, benches, and lawn. Two small streetside parks exist in the town, including Johnny Jazz Park, which has a trail, benches, and lawn; and Veterans Park, which includes a World War II cannon, flagpole, and lawn.[54]

There are plans to build a new large park called Sunset Avenue Park along the Swimming River on a former landfill site in the southwestern part of the borough. The park is to include wooded trails, sledding hills, a lawn, playground, boardwalk, picnic pavilion, plaza, a living wall, skatepark, kayak launch, and two parking lots.[54] There is also a plan to completely redo Marine Park, finalized in 2019. The final concept plan includes an entry plaza with a water feature, a memorial plaza, restrooms, lawns, natural playground, event lawn/seasonal ice rink, pier, food truck space, pavilion, kayak launch, marina, sculptured waterfront plaza, shade structures, a riverboat attraction, a waterfront walkway, a parking lot, storm water management, and pump stations.[80]

While Red Bank has 4 miles (6.4 km) of waterfront, only a small portion of it is publicly accessible. The only waterfront walkways that currently exist are those found in Marine Park, Riverside Gardens Park, Maple Cove, as well as the privately owned walkways at the Molly Pitcher Inn and Oyster Point Hotel, and at condominiums. Red Bank has the long term plan of connecting the entire waterfront via one large publicly accessible waterfront walkway. The two main priorities are connecting the waterfronts between Marine Park and Riverside Gardens Park; as well as connecting Bellhaven Nature Area with the future Sunset Avenue Park. The borough also is in the works of making the waterfront property owned by Riverfront Medical Center into a publicly accessible waterfront.[54]

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

Other recreational facilities within Red Bank include a YMCA, Red Bank Public Library, Boys & Girls Club of Monmouth County, boat & yacht clubs, and the Red Bank senior center. There are several buildings on the state and national historic register, including the T. Thomas Fortune House, the Anthony Reckless Estate, the Robert White House, Carlton Theatre, Monmouth Boat Club, Red Bank Passenger Station, Monmouth Boat Club, North Shrewsbury Ice Boat & Yacht Club, River Street School, and Shrewsbury Township Hall. The borough also has designations for the Broad Street Historic District and the Washington Street Historic District.[54]

Boating, sculling, sailing, 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.[81] 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.[82]


Local government[edit]

Since July 1, 2023, Red Bank has been governed under the Faulkner Act (council–manager) form of government; the borough form has been used since the borough's incorporation in 1908, and all members then serving in office under the old form had their terms end in June 2023.[83][84] The governing body is comprised of the mayor and a six-member borough council, with all positions elected at-large on a non-partisan basis to serve four-year terms of office (after the initial election). In the May 2023 municipal election, a mayor and council were elected under the new form, with council members randomly assigned so that four serve two-year teams and two serve four-year terms. The Council voted in July 2023 to move elections to November, so four council seats will be up for election in November 2025, with the mayor and the other two council seats up for vote in November 2027, with that cycle continuing in odd-numbered years; the change to November elections meant that the council members elected in 2023 had their term-end month shifted from June to December.[85]

As of July 2023, the mayor of Red Bank is William J. Portman, whose term of office ends December 31, 2027. Members of the Borough Council are Kristina Bonatakis (term ending 2025), David Cassidy (2025), Nancy Facey-Blackwood (2027), Ben Forest (2025), Laura Jannone (2025) and Kate Triggiano (2027), all of whom were elected together on the "Red Bank's Ready" slate at the May 2023 election.[86][87][88]

Federal, state, and county representation[edit]

Red Bank is in the 6th Congressional District[89] and is part of New Jersey's 11th state legislative district.[90][91][92]

For the 118th United States Congress, New Jersey's 6th congressional district is represented by Frank Pallone (D, Long Branch).[93][94] New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Democrats Cory Booker (Newark, term ends 2027)[95] and Bob Menendez (Englewood Cliffs, term ends 2025).[96][97]

For the 2024-2025 session, the 11th legislative district of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the New Jersey Senate by Vin Gopal (D, Long Branch) and in the General Assembly by Margie Donlon (D, Ocean Township) and Luanne Peterpaul (D, Long Branch).[98]

Monmouth County is governed by a Board of County Commissioners composed of five members who are elected at-large to serve three-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with either one or two seats up for election each year as part of the November general election. At an annual reorganization meeting held in the beginning of January, the board selects one of its members to serve as director and another as deputy director.[99] As of 2024, Monmouth County's Commissioners are:

Director Thomas A. Arnone (R, Neptune City, 2025),[100] Susan M. Kiley (R, Hazlet Township, 2024),[101] Erik Anderson (R, Shrewsbury, 2026),[102] Nick DiRocco (R, Wall Township, 2025),[103] and Deputy Director Ross F. Licitra (R, Marlboro Township, 2026).[104][105][106]

Constitutional officers elected on a countywide basis are: Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon (R, 2025; Ocean Township),[107][108] Sheriff Shaun Golden (R, 2025; Howell Township)[109][110] and Surrogate Rosemarie D. Peters (R, 2026; Middletown Township).[111][112]
