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.

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.
