Red Bank

Red Bank is the only town in New Jersey to deliver a modern, urban lifestyle in a historic shore setting. Classic Victorian and colonial homes distinguish Red Bank’s architectural landscape, but the development of the luxury mixed-use West Side Lofts predicts the gentrification of the Arts & Antique District. Accessible are two theaters with impressive productions and Riverside Gardens Park, where locals enjoy summertime movies, jazz, and fitness classes overlooking the Navesink River. Red Bank Regional High School, ranked by NJ Monthly, The Washington Post, and News Week as a top performer, offers eight specialized learning academies, including The Academy of Visual and Performing Arts which has drawn tuition-paying students from as many as 21 other school districts. Young residents have access to full-day pre-K and its acclaimed “Tools of the Mind” curriculum, and all Red Bank students wear uniforms through eighth grade, including those at The Red Bank Charter School. The vibrant downtown promises competitive employment options from internationally recognized employers such as K. Hovnanian homebuilders, financial management firms, (UBS, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley), and Tradeworx, a rapidly growing high-frequency trading firm. A bounty of shops and restaurants range from a trendy steakhouse to a classic train car-style diner. But it’s an establishment like Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen, with its pay-what-you-can attitude and organic garden, that reflects the progressive, community-minded population. Formed in 1870, Red Bank has always been Monmouth County’s economic and cultural center, now it’s also “a cool little town.”
