Weather forecasters from the National Weather Service say that the Saturday night storm that ripped through Freehold was a strong “downburst.” According to forecasters, a downburst is created by a column of sinking rain and cool air.

What do you think would be a great addition to Downtown Freehold?
Ever since RU Music re-located from Downtown Freehold to the Freehold Raceway Mall, 23 Main St. has been empty for quite some time now. Located next to the new Investors Savings Bank, the 3,500 square-foot office/retail space is available for lease. According to loopnet.com, rent is $3,000 per month and the property a B2 zoning, which means it can be used for retail goods, a drug store, variety stores, a liquor store or a tavern. But, what do you think should go here? What is missing from Freehold's downtown strip? TELL US in the comments section below.
