Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge will be closed overnight Thursday through Friday morning

Murphy’s Tavern and Val’s Tavern in Rumson are likely to have a better night on Thursday than Tommy’s Tavern and Tap Room and Woody’s Grille in Sea Bright due to the fact that the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge (S-32) will close for maintenance at 8 p.m.  The bridge will reopen at 6 a.m. on Friday morning.

Uber drivers are advised that the best route to Sea Bright from Rumson is via the Oceanic Bridge into Middletown, right onto Locust Point Road and  right on Locust Ave over the bridge to Navesink Ave (by  the brick church).  Make a right on Navesink and another right on Route 36 in Highlands.  Take Route 36 over the Capt Joe Azzolina Bridge and you’re in Sea Bright.   McCloone’s and Tommy’s will be down the road on your right.

Sea Bright’s Rebuilding Will Move Forward

IMG_2192The Borough of Sea Bright will be able to move forward with plans to move their municipal operations out of a gymnasium, their library out of a church and police, fire and EMS services out of trailers.

By a 2-1 margin, voters of the tiny seaside borough approved three bond questions on Tuesday and authorized the borrowing of $5.8 million for the replacement of municipal infrastructure destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

Hopefully the borough will no longer need to sell beach badges in the winter.

Organ Music Returns to Sea Bright June 4th

Charlie Rooney Organ Libray (800x783)June 4th is the first Saturday of the month and that means that the organ in the Sea Bright Library/United Methodist Church will once again be making beautiful music, thanks to the efforts of Councilman Charlie Rooney.

When Rooney was working with the Sea Bright United Methodist Church to have them host the borough’s library after Hurricane Sandy, he was struck with the beauty of the chapel and especially the pipe organ that majestically rises behind the altar.

Rooney learned that an organ’s pipes will deteriorate if they are not played, and the church’s organ wasn’t being used much. To preserve organ and enhance the community, Rooney arranges for an organist to play for an hour on the first Saturday of every month.
