Red Bank: Rethinking Shrewsbury Avenue

November 8, 2019

Held at the T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center on Drs. James Parker Boulevard, the session was led by graduate students in urban planning at Rutgers University’s Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. They’re participating in a “design studio” led by planners Susan Gruel and Fred Heyer, whose firm, Heyer Gruel & Associates, is based on Broad Street.

About half the two dozen or so audience members indicated that they lived in or near the Shrewsbury Avenue corridor. Asked to identify what they like about it, participants cited the area’s ethnic and racial diversity, its walkability and its small restaurants and shops, among other pluses.
