ON THE GREEN: ESCAPING INTO FRESH AIR

red-bank-maple-avenue-0326201-500x332-1874607It’s a bit incongruous: beautiful spring weather amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has the Greater Red Bank Green, and parts of the world, on near-lockdown.

Of course, Governor Phil Murphy’s “stay-at-home” order issued Saturday allows for socially-distanced outdoor exercise. And a redbankgreen swing through the Greater Green Thursday found plenty of residents taking in the fresh air, including a jogger on Maple Avenue in Red Bank, above.

“We got this,” he said of the virus. “People are doing what they need to do.” 

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
