The Red Bank you don't know: Big changes are coming to the West Side

A NEW WEST SIDE IS RISING IN RED BANK, BRINGING FRESH ENERGY TO A DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOOD ACROSS THE TRACKS FROM THE BOROUGH'S BUSY DOWNTOWN.

By the time Tricia and Keith Nelson arrived on the West Side in the late 1980s, its old-fashioned charm had largely disappeared.

She and her husband Keith own British Cottage, a furniture store offering an eclectic mix of new handcrafted pieces from the United States and Europe and centuries-old antiques. The business got its start on West Front Street, but a forced relocation led the Nelsons to their current location on Shrewsbury Avenue.

“At that stage this was not a particularly good part of town, so it was considered a bold move,” Tricia Nelson said, “but it was the only thing we could afford.”

More than 30 years later, the Nelsons still live in a spacious apartment above the store, and loyal customers continue to beat a path to their door. “We’re still here, which is the point of the whole story,” Tricia Nelson said.
