Great photos! The Ironbound is one of my favorite NJ places. The restaurants are unbeatable! Whether I go for fish appetizers and cairpirinhas or a full endless dinner with a pitcher of sangria, I'm always in for a treat when I eat out in the Ironbound. It's been nearly a year now since I've gone out up there. I'm long overdue!

How come they call it Ironbound? Surrounded by train tracks? My brother explained it to me one time but I forgot.

Ironbound rocks! Been a long time too since ive been there.

Your right Recchia, this is how the name orignated, according to Wikipedia:

The name "Ironbound" is said to have originated from the many forges and foundries that were found in this area during the latter half of the 19th century. However, the name could also have come from the rail tracks that surrounded the area when the railroads were constructed during the 1830s.
