RED BANK: BRINGING IN THE BIG GUN
A 120-ton, 16-inch cannon from the battleship USS New Jersey sat in the rail yard in Red Bank Saturday awaiting transport to Battery Lewis in Middletown’s Hartshorne Woods Park.
The gun, similar to one formerly in place at Battery Lewis, is to be hauled by truck to the park on March 30 for temporary, and eventually permanent, installation at the site, which was part of the Navesink Military Reservation during World War II, after which the guns were removed.
