    I’ve lived in NJ for 60 years and have been exploring the sites since I was little, kayaking the Maurice and Egg Harbor Rivers, visiting the historic sites, and hiking in the northern mountains. We need to revisit Patterson since they had just been designated a site when we were there. The photo from the Ellis Island Hospital Complex reminded me of the wonderful tour we took through the buildings a couple years ago. It was an amazing experience.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I took that photo on a recent tour of the hospital complex…just before everything shut down. Paterson has made some nice improvements since becoming a park and offers tours and other programs throughout the year…hopefully you can visit once they open up again

    1. All visitor centers and bathrooms closed for now. But Sandy Hook reopens this weekend for hiking, running, no beach going. Delaware water gap is open for hiking also, but again, no facilities and parking capped at 50% of capacity. So, not a good time to travel from out of state to visit. Hopefully things start to open in July

  2. I’m ashamed to admit (even after living in New Jersey) only 1! Ellis Island. I’m going to blame not having a car but sure wish I would have been following your blog back when I lived in the US!
