The couple moved to Red Bank from Paris because they were excited to be part of such a reinvigorated community built on the site of a National Historical Landmark. "At first, we thought of Fortune Square as if the word 'fortune' was connected to its primary [literal] meaning, and thus we assumed this was smart real estate marketing," Applefield remembered. "But the real fortune here, and the source of our enduring feeling of being fortunate, comes from the true source of the house and its accompanying accommodations:
Most can attest to Fortune Square as being a "value-added"
The Applefields' apartment overlooks the Fortune House. "We can feel the moral commitment of the builder, Roger Mumford, in both his thematic approach to this community as it relates to the legacy of Thomas Fortune, as well as design and craftsmanship,"
When it comes to location, nothing quite compares to living on what Applefield refers to as the creative edge of a town that has a real-life pulse. "Even the whistle of the freight train that barrels past in the early morning has become a source of local charm," he said.
For those looking to move to Red Bank, New Jersey or even the United States, the Applefields' story attests to the fact that you never know where life will take you next. "I'm a Jersey boy, but my wife is Parisian," said Applefield. "We moved here from Paris… not only to Red Bank, but a part of Red Bank that is appropriately named Fortune Square."
