Lindenwold, Camden County, at the final PATCO station near the White Horse Pike (Rt. 30). I'm thinking $2.45 for the fare unless they raised it again since I last checked! :shok:

WOW 12 points in one shot!!!! From last place to first!

WTG SouthJersey7!!!

I need to start making these more difficult!

:shades:

That station brings back memories.. I used to go there and then take the bus to go to school at Camden County College. Also, for a short time my girlfriend lived about 3 blocks from there so I was there quite a bit!

FUN WITH PHOTOSHOP!

I took the photo from two weeks ago (Harrison) and had some fun with it in Photoshop. What do you think about this revitalization concept?

Remember the before photo...

Photoshop is always fun! Nice pic

Id like to see more of Jersey Ave with that kind of development but unfortunately, the highways leading to Jersey Ave cannot handle any more vehicles than it already can. How Lane, Suydam and Handy Streets most of the time during the day are too crowded. Even with teh NE Corridor right there, people will rather drive there than take the train/bus there.

I heard there building ANOTHER mall and/or shopping center over at the intersection of Route 1 at Route 522(Promenade Blvd) in South Brunswick.

The Jersey Ave train station is a strange beast. It functions as a park&ride for Newark/NYC-bound commuters, and the timetables are not very cooperative to allow destination trips there during rush hours. It has a miserable level of service. I'm not too familiar with that area's traffic patterns but I'd imagine most traffic is made up of people from New & North Bruns to the industrial areas and then back out.

A new mall in So Brunswick? :sick: Awesome. Isn't West Windsor close enough? So Brunswick is growing quickly though. They're set to get a new train station on the NEC sometime in the future.

Ive also heard talks about building ANOTHER stop on the NE Corridor in the Renissance Development in North Brunswick off Route 130 (its across from the county jail). This would make so much sense because a lot of the traffic on 130 is due to that massive development. South Brunswick needs a stop on the NE Corridor but the stupid NIMBYs dont want one, actually they dont want anything (especially Route 92). All they care about is widening Route 1 and widening other roadways when the town is so huge, it will only be a temporary solution.

Griggstown, Somerset County? (wild guess)

Farm with a bizarre looking house?

I really have no clue but it looks like a weird NJ location to me

That is the Wharton mansion in the Bastso village (spelling?)down near the Pine Barrens. It's on the Bastso River, I believe. I think the town is called Bastso as well. I know it's in Atlantic County. I can't remember the names of the other properties in the village.

I've lived in SC a while but I get back up to NJ a lot.

^Just incase the county is wrong, its Burlington County. Maybe its off US 9 :P

Since there were no pine trees in the pics, i would of never guessed it was near the pinelands!

Ok I know this is not my thread but I don't think Lammius will mind if I post a pic of my own. Well not of my own actually, I got it from another site (with permission of course! ;) ) Anyway, there are 3 categories to this one: the city it's in, (approximate) location in the city, and what the building is used for. Good Luck!

I would guess it's on State Street. As for what it's used for... I doubt it's a brothel, it looks like some sort of small state agency office or resource center?

Yes! And no it's not a brothel :lol: it is a state office, and it belongs to the only statewide elected official. (this should be easy now!)

No, it's on State Street right across from the NJ State Building. It's the office of the only statewide elected official in NJ! ( ;) )
