Red Bank, NJ

December 24-25, 2004

Intent on catching Christmas in Red Bank, and not sure whether I would be able to get out on Christmas Day, I arrived downtown and parked on Mechanic Street as daylight waned.

Fire Station #1 on Mechanic Street, near Broad Street.

Looking west on Mechanic toward Broad.

Things slowed down and I had a few free afternoon and evening hours on Christmas.
Red Bank was absolutely dead. I parked near the Galleria on the west side of town.

Onto Broad Street, Red Bank's main drag: Mr. Mattress store front

Director Kevin Smith is from Red Bank - this is his store.
