At least one member of the sprawling redbankgreen staff expected more readers to recognize last week’s image, which showed a basic cinderblock shell of a building under construction.

The reason: its location, at the Sea Bright anchorage of the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge, behind the Gulf station and Dunkin’ Donuts. Thousands of cars a day must go past it.

Then again, with the river, the ocean and the sign touting the borough as the “home of the Sea Bright Skiff” all visible at that intersection of Rumson Road and Ocean Avenue, it’s easy to overlook, too.

Former Sea Bright Councilman Read Murphy wrote in to say that spot, hard against the Shrewsbury River, was for several decades starting in the 1930s the location of a thriving night spot that featured live bands and dancing. Can anyone fill in some details?

This week, another variation on the theme. If you think you know where it is, please let us know.
