    Fries Mill

    I'm sure they must exist somewhere. A good place to ask would probably be in this Camp Hollybrook Facebook group. I can't ask myself as I do not have an account.

    Change is coming to Washington Crossing

    Ah yes, crossing over this bridge is quite the experience. Always have to fold the mirrors in ahead of time coming up 29, and even then, it is a crazy tight squeeze. A friend of mine scratched the side of their car up on this span just a couple weeks after buying it. I am up near Washington...

    Fries Mill

    If anyone wants to see how it used to look, it's at around 4:40 in this video, which is what got me interested in going there in the first place: This also has footage of the adjacent NJ Silica Sand company ruins. I really enjoy Tom Lynskey's work; he has so many great videos on many...

    Fries Mill

    Ahh, I see now. I misunderstood. I thought that one of the chimneys at the site with 2 of them had been toppled. I thought your first photo was showing some damage, but now I see that it isn't, it's just that the vines have been cleared away from it. That is interesting. I wonder why that would...

    Fries Mill

    That seems suspicious. Seems pretty close together with the collapse of the single chimney that was at the ruins of the old house near the creek (I posted a photo in the first post in this thread). I wonder if someone is going back there and smashing them up. Here's what the chimney in your...

    DEP Announces Virtual Public Meeting to Launch Wharton State Forest Visitor and Vehicle Use Survey

    Whoops, I meant to come back to this some time ago, but got sidetracked. Here is a revision with hopefully better contrast: https://ibb.co/5Tv0yzn

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    It's a good point, there really is not a whole lot of parking. There is a small dedicated lot around the back side with space for maybe four cars, and the rest of the parking would have to be on the side of the street, as you can see in that old photo I posted earlier. Maybe there would be...

    More smoke in the pines

    You have to go outside the Pines, but check out Amma's (my personal favorite), Coriander, or Nimit Palace, all in Voorhees. There is a high concentration of great Indian food there. Indeblue in Cherry Hill is also worth a mention.

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    The best case scenario is that the person or people who buy this property have the funds to clean the place up and the talent to turn it into a successful business again. It is a long shot, but it could be done. Buzby's has a similar story and sat empty for much longer periods in its history...

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    It does look like it might share the same address, yes. I wonder what the story on this house is. It took me an extra second to realize that "Impizza" on the mailbox is just for Indian Mills Pizza, rather than someone's last name :)

    More smoke in the pines

    I mean, I don't know about that. The little store was pretty cool. They had a whole section of Pine Barrens books and they sold locally grown blueberries, cranberries, honey, etc, and other locally made products (soap, candles, etc). You could get a jug of Boost, I think. Sure, it was just a...

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    Wasn't me. I did stop by yesterday to snap a couple of pictures of its current state, though. In case someone immediately starts razing it. The former "Regency Room" around back. It definitely needs a lot of cleanup work, but at least from the outside, it doesn't look so bad as to require...

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    I'm thinking that's probably just inaccurate information on the listing.

    An interesting prospect with likely pitfalls

    I remember eating there when it was open, probably at least 15 years ago. They also served British food in addition to the pizza, if I remember correctly. Something of an odd combination. The couple that ran the place were very friendly people. I drive by it often, but I guess I hadn't...

    More smoke in the pines

    Oh, I see. Thankfully nothing has actually gone up in smoke - the thread title is just a reference to the property being leased out to a cannabis company following the closure of the diner. The dining space is supposed to be turned into a manufacturing facility for cannabis balms, and the old...

    More smoke in the pines

    Sorry - I thought it would be pretty clear in context, given that this whole thread is about the diner.

    Are E-bikes motorized vehicles?

    I saw this page as well while researching, but I assume that this Title 39 stuff is in addition to the Park Service Code if you are operating this kind of bike in the forest. Technically, these could also fall under the definition of off-road vehicles, since they are defined so broadly. So I...

    Are E-bikes motorized vehicles?

    I had actually been considering something like this as a relatively inexpensive, very low environmental impact way to get back onto some roads that I can definitely not get my car down and which would otherwise be long hikes...

    Schmung road

    If you are looking for how "Shamong" probably became "Schmung," you really don't have to go much further than the first 20 seconds of this great video which was just posted: https://forums.njpinebarrens.com/threads/an-interview-with-spike-wells.14700/#post-178328 :)
