Can anyone suggest a good spot away from the main crowds in Red Bank for the Navesink Fireworks show? I was thinking maybe some of the local parks, like Stevenson Park or Bodman Park.

Oyster Point Hotel or anywhere near the marina.

thx, but was looking for something a little more distant but hopefully still able to view the sky show. Getting down 35 and finding parking down there for the show is a nightmare. Was thinking the parks were far enough to be less crowded but close enough to see.
