Red Bank NJ Real Estate

Red Bank is a Monmouth County borough located on the Navesink River, bordered by Fair Haven, Little Silver, Shrewsbury, Tinton Falls, and Middletown Township.

The borough’s name refers to the red soil in the area around the river, and was first used in 1736 when town pioneer Thomas Morford sold Joseph French “a lot of over three acres on the west side of the highway that goes to the red bank.”

Throughout its history, Red Bank had been a thriving shipping, commercial, and retail district, but the borough suffered a setback in the wake of the 1980s recession.

By 2010, however, Red Bank had made a tremendous comeback, largely brought about by a successful special improvement district program that revitalized the borough’s town center. The SID was and continues to be managed by the Red Bank River Center, an organization composed of property and business owners in the area.

Living in Red Bank

Red Bank’s bustling business district is the community center, and is home to various financial and investment firms, shops, boutiques, restaurants, galleries, theaters, and more.

The Navesink River is the hub for outdoor activities and community events, and is one of the borough’s main attractions.

The activities happening all around Red Bank provide excellent business and employment opportunities for residents. Additionally, many Red Bank locals commute to nearby New York City for work through the New Jersey Transit trains. The proximity of major highways also allows easy access to the city and other destinations.
