10 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned WWII Bunker Hiding In New Jersey

There are abandoned places all over New Jersey, some of which are truly fascinating. For prime exploring, many head to the Pine Barrens. The woods are filled with remnants of former milling and mining towns, several of which are hidden and others which are well-preserved attractions (like Batsto Village). However, you can find abandoned barns up in Sussex County, abandoned factories in Essex County, and abandoned bunkers in Cape May County…formerly vibrant buildings become nothing as the years go by. While the bunker I’m referring to may not be considered hidden to locals, it’s certainly an unexpected surprise for many visitors. Exactly how much of the bunker you can see at any given time depends on the tides.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
