WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?
Nope, not McCarter Pond in Fair Haven.
Nope, not McCarter Pond in Fair Haven.
Interesting variety in last week’s answers.
One reader thought the hot pink school bus shown in the photo belonged to a locksmith. Another identified it with a farm on McClees Road in Middletown. But two others had the location right: 114 East Front Street in Rumson.
Was last week’s Where just too obvious to bother writing in about? Or did we stump even our Wheregulars?
Seven readers wrote in to identify the idyllic garden and gazebo shown in last week’s Where.
Well, what it is isn’t hard to guess. But do you know Where?
For a bench we’ve rarely seen anyone sitting on, the one featured in last week’s Where sure is well-recognized.
Pull up a seat, ponder life’s greatest question which is, of course, ‘Where Have I Seen This?’ and then, having divined the answer, send it here by email, please.
Last week’s photo: the former Douglas Auto Electric shop at the corner of Maple Avenue and West Bergen Place/Drs. James Parker Boulevard in Red Bank, which was in the process of getting a fresh coat of paint when Where Have I Seen This? passed by.
One reader slipped and fell, but eighteen others skated to the correct answer to last week’s Where.
For the August doldrums, a gimme.
Then again, we thought last week’s Where was unmistakable.

Wheregulars Trish DePonti and the Colmorgen Kids correctly identified the location of last week’s Where: part of the facade of the Willow Deli, on Willow Drive in Little Silver. Thanks for writing in as always folks.
Thanks to Jill Kozlowski, Trish DePonti and the Colmorgen Kids, who all wrote in and correctly identified last week’s Where, a shot of a building wall with the vestigial marks of ivy or some other growth that had been removed.
Just as its furry little ilk seems to have dominion over smaller yards and gardens, a giant rabbit ruled last week’s Where Have I Seen This?
As a whopping 31 readers recognized, the big topiary rabbit shown was from the ornamental gate at the estate known as Sheep’s Run, on Rumson Road in Rumson.
Last week we got a little trippy with Where Have I Seen This. Couldn’t help ourselves.
We noticed, while seated on a bench across Broad Street in Red Bank from Yestercades one recent evening, that the sunlight on the red brick building on the east side of the street home to a Merrill Lynch office is reflected in great detail in the Yestercades window, and that a painting of a woman’s head on that window appears to float over the reflection.
No, we weren’t hallucinating. Click on the original photo above right to see for yourself.
Don’t take today’s Where at face value: the original image repeats in our mind-blowing treatment. Click it for a closer look, man.
Then, if you think you know where the photo was taken, drop us a line, please.
Rumson Country Day School. Trinity Episcopal Church on West Front Street in Red Bank. “The stone church in Locust,” twice.
Those were the guesses we received for last week’s photo, showing a bright red, arch-top wooden door in a stone facade.
Twenty-five of the 27 readers who wrote in to identify the four pastel-colored Adirondack chairs shown in last week’s photo got it right.
The mistaken pair might want to take a seat in what several others refer to as the Four Chairs of Wisdom which according to Jim Fitzmaurice, replaced the Bench of Knowledge outside Butler’s Deli in Rumson.
It is there during early morning sessions, that “the problems of the world are discussed and resolved,” Jim writes. “Weather permitting.”
Last week’s Where generated no responses. Where was everybody?
Answer to last week’s Where: those decorative panels showing arrow-dodging zebras are in the the front window of Silberstein Interior Designs on Broad Street (Route 35) in Shrewsbury.
Reader Susan McLaughlin shared some fun facts about the design:
Recognize it? Take another peak.
Whoa, easy there, fella. If you smell meat, it’s only because we’ve just come from the butcher shop.
A second clue to last week’s Where Have I Seen This? didn’t keep some fans of this feature from going a bit astray.
One guessed it was taken at Prown’s Home Improvement on Monmouth Street. Another suggested “Page Photo Service (Matthew Page) located at 113 West Front Street, Red Bank” and added: “They had purchased the entire facilities of the Camera Shop formerly located in Carlton Theater building,” which is of course now the Count Basie Theatre.
Here’s the real story behind this week’s Where: Yes, you’ve seen this iconic sign someplace, but don’t go submitting Wallace Street as your answer.
If you can ID the location, please send us an email.
