Overview

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places,
and things the Garden State has to offer!

Visit a tree-towering telephone pole farm; a record-breaking gargantuan brown bear called Goliath; and a cave-like craggy-walled coffee-brewing cafe.

Meet a Hickory Dickory Dock clock-covering car artist; a gas station-turned-
restaurant-owning undertaker; and a hot dog vendor and his cartoon-covered bus.

Discover the real birthplace of baseball; a really graphic tombstone; and the real way to eat chicken at a medieval restaurant—two thumbs (and the rest of your fingers) up!

Whether you’re a born-and-raised New Jerseyan or a recent transplant, author Peter Genovese will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed—right in your own backyard.
