For anyone that is from New Jersey, I'm sure you are all aware of the "Weird NJ" magazines and stories that bring together a large collection of strange/odd places and people in the state.

I found a few that I'm putting up, feel free to add the ones you find!

Isn't "weird new jersey" redundant?

This is the Shades of Death Rd and Great Meadows area.
Weird NJ has some information about how the
road got it's name. Ghost Lake is nearby.

Here's a link to the WNJ description and a better angle on the old
dried up lakebed of Great Meadows (now sod farms).

Great finds! I'd love to see a KMZ for the haunted house if its in a high-res zone :)

There is a windmill on Mount Joy in New Jersey:

On previous posting about Shades of Death/Ghost Lake.
Ghost Lake is 1.7 miles from the intersection of 611 and Shades of Death Road.
The "Organ House", described in the WNJ article, has been destroyed, according to several visitors to the area.

But I'd love to know what happens in this "Mountain House".

The Demon's Alley story is fascinating.
It was posted on keyhole community site
by greenwood, so I'm not going to steal his
thunder. WNJ has an article on it.
