Though they’ve been there for years, the turning lanes on Broad Street in downtown Red Bank turn out not to have ever been codified by ordinance, an oversight, according to Mayor Pasquale Menna, that the borough council corrected Wednesday night.
The fix applies to turning lanes at Harding Road, Linden Place, Monmouth Street and East and West Front Streets.

Weeks of abuse in the form of heavy snow, thawing and refreezing have left numerous craters in the streets of Red Bank, where orange barrels are now appearing to divert motorists. One is in the middle of the westbound lane on Reckless Place, at Broad Street, above, and another is in the center of East Bergen Place near Hudson Avenue, at right. The borough maintains a hotline to which motorists can report potholes: 732-530-2691. (Click to enlarge)
Saxman David Farrow, a product of Tinton Falls who lives and plays professionally in Atlanta, was out on Broad Street in Red Bank Tuesday, absolutely nailing the ballad ‘My One and Only Love‘ and slipping in a beautiful Coltrane-inspired bridge. Farrow says he’ll be hanging around downtown for the next week or so. Bring your ears. (Photo by Jim Willis. Click to enlarge)
Dozens of dogs and their human pals turned out on a pleasant summer evening Tuesday for the first edition of Red Bank’s Dog Days, and redbankgreen was there to catch the wags, smiles and occasional slobbers. We’ve got lots more photos after the “read more.”
The canine meet-and-greet, held on a closed-to-traffic stretch of Monmouth Street, is scheduled to repeat on the last Tuesday night of August, September and October. (Click to enlarge)

The man in charge of clearing Red Bank’s streets called Tuesday night’s snowfall of about ten inches “average” and said his crews had opened all borough streets by 7a.
“We were lucky,” said public utilities director Gary Watson. “We got less than forecast. This is pretty average.”
The snow was also lighter than that which fell in the blizzard of December 26-27, which paralyzed the town for days.
