So my wife goes to New Jersey to see Bon Jovi and comes home complaining about dilapidated buildings and roads where you can't turn left. It kind of bummed me out because I was hoping to hear her tales of how TV and movies only show the tough streets and ruins while there is so much beauty that remains known only to the locals and wide-eyed tourists. Alas, I may need to go there myself one day to find such treasures.
I had a friend who was from there and I'm pretty sure she told me how beautiful the Jersey Shore was. Until I can make it up there myself, I'll just have to dig around online and see what I can find. Google Street View, Flickr, and any commenters are welcome to show me the beauty of the Garden State. Rich?
