Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash
65 Broad Street | [map]
This fantabulous store is “the one and only retail outlet specializing in anything related to the films from View Askew Productions (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Jersey Girl),” according to its website. Not only does the signage zany up the streetscape (while still managing to stay within guidelines), the inside is full of comics and illustrated novels, action figures, and memorabilia from the movies created by Red Bank native Kevin Smith.
View Askew, Smith’s production company, has offices on Broad Street, and has used Red Bank as a location in many of his films.

Wharf Avenue and Navesink River | [map]
This waterfront park is a splendid place to picnic and watch the river. During the summer, kids go crabbing here. The park also hosts concerts and festivals.
During its early years, Red Bank was an important river town. Farm produce, wood, and seafood were sent to New York, returning with cargoes of manufactured goods and beer. The steamships Sea Bird and Albertina graced the Navesink in the mid-19th Century. The passengers often moved to Red Bank permanently. In 1840, a writer noted that Red Bank “is the most rapidly increasing village in the state except for Keyport.”
Irwin’s Yacht Works, to the north of the park, has been in operation for more than a century.
