On the road between NJ and NY.

This is the new Mario Cuomo bridge spanning the Hudson River between NJ and NY.  It replaced the old Tappan Zee Bridge.

The ‘A’ train at the New York State Museum – Albany, New York

‘Take The A Train’ is also the title of a song that refers to the A line of New York’s subway train service. At the time of the song’s conception in 1939, this line ran from Brooklyn, up into Harlem, and then northern Manhattan.

The Top of New Jersey…

HIGH POINT STATE PARK,  which is the highest point in  New Jersey is located in Montague in Sussex County. At 1,803 feet above sea level it is the highest peak of the Kittatinny Mountains.  At the peak of the highest point is the 220 ft High Point Monument– from the top you can see New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

There are 291 stairs to the top. I climbed them on my first visit to the monument in Sept, 1972.. I snapped this picture because I knew I’d never do it again. The monument isn’t open for the season yet so I didn’t have to find out if I would or not.. I like to think I would have tried.

View from the top Sept 1972.   Same view now but from base of monument.

 There are also hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and a lake.

As the name of my blog implies yes, I am obsessed with Martha’s Vineyard… but I am also proud of my home state of New Jersey.

(There may have been some liberties taken with a few of the photographs… can you guess which ones?)  🙂
