You don’t really know a place until you’ve walked it, right?
Well, redbankgreen has had the good fortune of walking, biking and driving the streets that comprise the Greater Red Bank Green, camera and notebook in hand, for a decade now.

A redbankgreen reporter was threatened with arrest by Fair Haven police today when he tried to photograph the wrecked fire department vehicle of former fire chief Shaun Foley.
The incident occurred at the borough’s public works department facility on Allen Street, where the fire department vehicle was partially covered by a tarp, says reporter Dustin Racioppi.
According to Racioppi, he entered the administrative building at the site in order to get permission from DPW supervisor and borough engineer Rich Gardella to take pictures of the car within the borough property.
