The Garden State has a rich, storied history as part of one of the original colonies, but as neighbor to the much-celebrated New York, New Jersey gets a bad reputation. Maybe it’s the pollution, the unsightly factories, the Jersey Shore stereotypes, or the seemingly endless boring suburbs: there’s something about New Jersey that people just can’t help making jokes about. But maybe we should all start taking NJ more seriously; it’s one of the most haunted and creepiest states in the nation!
Warning: do not read after dark, and do not read while driving down a lonely New Jersey road at night…unless, of course, you want to be up all night!
