National Transportation Safety Board inspecting damaged vessel today
The captain of the Seastreak ferry, which crashed into a pier in Lower Manhattan Wednesday, has been identified as Jason Reimer of Red Bank, according to a report in the Star Ledger. Reimer and his crew passed alcohol tests after the crash, which left 74 commuters injured, the report stated. The National Transportation Safety Board planned to interview Reimer today and will complete a thorough inspection of the damaged ferry. James Barker, Seastreak's chairman, told the Ledger Reimer was a "great guy and a fine captain" who had been with the company for 10 years.

Though KaBoom! Fireworks on the Navesink hasn't been canceled, there's been no talk about bringing it back this year.
The prospect of seeing fireworks return to Red Bank this summer is grim. And it’s not necessarily because of what officials are saying, but rather what they’re not saying. At Wednesday's council meeting, after giving the go-ahead to Flavour to host a two-day weekend event at the end of June, just a few days shy of the Fourth of July and Red Bank’s annual July 3rd fireworks show, Mayor Pat Menna said there have been no discussions whatsoever about bringing KaBoom! Fireworks on the Navesink back to the borough. Planning for the show, which attracted crowds of upward of 100,000 people to the borough’s downtown and riverfront prior to its suspension, typically began soon after the last firework exploded in the sky over the Navesink each July …

Turned down by the SBA, the owner of the Red Bank waterfront restaurant turns to the web and its crowd-source fundraising.
When Sandy slammed into Monmouth County in October she washed out homes and businesses alike, but most of Red Bank was left with little more than a long, cold power outage. Not spared was The Boondock's Fishery, which hangs on a little piece of real estate on the bank of the Navesink River next to Irwin's Marine Facilities in Marine Park. Despite moving a large portion of the restaurant to higher ground, Boondock's owner Kelly Ryan saw her beloved lobster shack, along with her kitchen business at Donovan's Reef in Sea Bright, wash away on Oct. 29. The surge took with it her livelihood at both establishments. "It's as if it was the first day of the business," she said. "I need everything, right down to the staples and the stapler." Ryan …

Where there were none as little as six months ago, there are now three burger joints in downtown Red Bank.
When Dhruman Shah signed his lease in January, taking residence in half the space formerly occupied by popular Red Bank combo coffee shop and café Zebu Forno, he saw potential in developing what the downtown lacked. It was a simple idea, yet at the time completely unique to the downtown. He’d provide a burger spot offering fresh food fast. Fast forward 11 months and through some construction and permitting delays and Shah’s Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries has opened its doors on Broad Street, the third burger joint to open downtown in the last six months. It wasn’t something he was expecting, but, like his burgers, the competition is on. “The area here is really nice and I see that here (in Red Bank) and in surrounding towns there’s no …
