The Remnants Of This Abandoned Prison In New Jersey Are Hauntingly Beautiful
New Jersey is home to some interesting ruins, including the remnants of former milling and mining towns in the Pine Lands. It’s a bit rarer to see ruins in the northern portion of our state as the area is more developed – any land not in use will be used for something soon enough. Still, you’ll find a fair share of abandoned spots. One of these spots is in New Jersey’s largest city.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
