Sidelined for five montD-19 pandemic, Red Bank’s zoning board is scheduled to get back to the business of deciding variance requests Thursday night.
On the agenda: a marina fuel tank and the conversion of offices to residential use.
The final installment of our Summer Scenes series finds photographer Luis Enrique Santamaria Delgado down on the banks of the Navesink River once again. He shot this photo through the boat storage racks of Irwin Marine at Union Street and Boat Club Court in Red Bank.
“Yes, I am drawn to the river,” says Luis, who spent part of the summer rowing with Navesink River Rowing. “The river is just an open space, like there’s no trees or, most of the time, people. And sunsets look great because you can kind of see the reflection of the sunset or what’s on the other side of the river on the water.”
redbankgreen thanks Luis for his wonderful photos, and wishes him the best as he enters eighth grade at Red Bank Middle School. His other Summer Scenes photos may be viewed here. (Photo by Luis Enrique Santamaria Delgado. Click to enlarge)

When people think of Sandys impact on Red Bank, most will say that the town didnt get it so bad,” says Kelly Ryan, owner of the Boondocks Fishery, a summer-only, open-air eatery that’s been serving lobsters and scallops adjacent to the Navesink River and Marine Park for the past four years. “But I guess they havent seen this place.
We came back here the day after the storm, and my first reaction was Oh my God, the building is still standing,'” she said. “But once we looked inside, we understood that even though the structure was still up, the insides were completely devastated.”
Thomas Alva Edison‘s links to New Jersey are well-documented. But it’s unlikely that many Garden Staters know about his interest in ice boating on what’s now called the Navesink River.
Your chance to learn all about it and see Edison’s actual footage is next week.
