Most people I know live in an apartment complex, a condo or on a residential street with no real history.  I grew up in Neptune City, NJ which is just a little speck on the map that nobody has heard of unless they’re from the surrounding area.

However, there is more to Neptune City.  There’s a vast amount of history that took place just on the street where I grew up.  I’m making this page for my family, friends, neighbors and members of the community who may not know how lucky they are to live or to have grown up in such an interesting place.

We may live on just another street but so much happened just on the intersection to the east of us.  It may seem like a quaint little neighborhood but this was once a booming industrial area.  I don’t think it gets the recognition it deserves so I’m here to change that.
