A few weeks ago we visited a weird and warped site for the city of Cincinnati. Nothing against that town, I have been there and enjoyed my visit. But it went to show that no matter where you are you can find an interesting sub culture of events, publications, and happenings that run counter to mainstream life. Today the Warped site visits another geographical location, one on the east coast of the United States.
The site is called Weird N.J. and it represents the best of the state of New Jersey. For those of you who are wondering just what Weird N.J. is all about, read on. Weird NJ is a travel guide and magazine to places you won’t find on state funded maps or located on any tourist attraction pamphlets. This site travels to places that are seen for what they are; weird, odd or unique, all told by New Jerseyans to Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran, publishers of Weird N.J., while traveling the backroads of the Garden State in search of local unwritten history and modern folklore.
What are some of the things they have found? There are weird animals (chicke with a human face), local heroes and villains (Charles Lindbergh, Jr.), cemetery safari (Bud’s Grave), and ghosts (most haunted house, college ghosts, and the lady in white). There are also links to other weird sites as well, such as ones for Ohio and New York, video clips of sites, and much, much more.
The Warp-o-Meter gives this site an 8.0 for it’s theme, and this coming Halloween, it should go even higher. Spooks beware, enter at your own risk!
