  1. I’m wondering why Stillwell House is not on your list? Their art and antiques are what first brought me to Red Bank (I had been a customer of theirs for years in Manalapan) and really provided an introduction to all the great cultural amenities the town has to offer. Their beautiful storefront on Front Street is undeniably a tribute to fine arts and a tour of the gallery itself (if you haven’t yet been) will knock your socks off. I would love to see you do a feature on them when you get the chance. No disrespect to any of the other merchants, but Stillwell House is truly in a class by itself.

    1. Oh, wow, you added them! Thank you! Thanks for this list, I look forward to visiting some of these other galleries on my next visit.
