The triCityNews is an alternative newspaper focusing on the arts, culture and politics in eastern Monmouth County, New Jersey. Distribution is from Atlantic Highlands to Belmar. The triCityNewspublishes every Thursday.

Our mission is to identify and promote the creative and alternative throughout the area. We have placed particular emphasis on promoting the restoration of Asbury Park to its rightful place as one of the great progressive and multicultural small cities in this country.In Red Bank, we advocate for the creative businesses and groups to come out on top as the town emerges from the real estate bust. And inLong Branch, we search diligently for a spark of creative life, focusing on that city's West End as a beacon of hope in an otherwise suburbanized waterfront community. And throughout the region, we uncover interesting artists, businesses and characters of all stripes.

Why do we do it? To defeat that most pernicious enemy we all face out here in suburbia. Namely, boredom. Judging by the growth of our newspaper and the large number of satisfied advertisers who stay in the triCityNews week after week, we think we're winning that battle.
