Red Bank, on the southern banks of the Navesink River and around five miles from the Atlantic Ocean, offers history, diversity, culture, and entertainment for those seeking a hip, urban vibe.
With its arts scene and access to New York City, Red Bank draws not only the young but also those at or near retirement.
There is a wide range of housing, from the large mansions along the Navesink River, where the television pundit Jon Stewart bought two adjacent homes six years ago, to the small Cape Cods and shotgun houses on the west side.
Residential streets within walking distance of downtown and the train station are desirable, with a wide variety of mostly vintage homes, while an elevated section at the east end of Red Bank, known as Tower Hill, offers larger properties with somewhat newer homes.
