New Jersey Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities and Other Offbeat Stuff
In this completely revised and updated edition of New Jersey Curiosities, award-winning columnist Pete Genovese introduces readers to the other side of the Garden State--not just "The Sopranos,' ten-story-high landfills, and the ugliest highway in the history of pavement (the New Jersey Turnpike). New Jersey also claims the world's best spaghetti, nicest sandwich, and biggest ice cream cone, not to mention world-famous crabs, cheesesteaks, chili dogs, peanut brittle, and milkshakes. But it's not all about food. Within these pages you will discover animal actors, the nation's oldest nudist camp, and the International Castor Oil Association (which is taking new members).
