New Jersey--home of "The Sopranos,' ten-story-high landfills, and the ugliest highway in the history of pavement (the New Jersey Turnpike), also claims the world's best spaghetti, nicest sandwich, and biggest ice cream cone, not to mention world-famous crabs, cheesesteaks, chili dogs, peanut brittle, and milkshakes. But it's not all about food. Within these pages you will discover animal actors, the nation's oldest nudist camp, and International Castor Oil Association (which is taking new members).

New Jersey Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things this state has to offer. Writer Peter Genovese has combed New Jersey for one-of-a-kind gems that make his home state truly unique.
You'll meet the undisputed Weenie Queen of Garfield, visit a hot dog shop that doubles as the Famous Monsters of Filmland Shrine, and groan at one-liners from the only blind waiter/stand-up comedian in New Jersey. You'll learn the proper way to cook a garbage can turkey, get the skinny on the real birthplace of baseball, and hear the story of Waving Willie, New Jersey's friendliest roadside character. You'll feel the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat at the New Jersey Cockroach Derby and then relive the OK Corral shoot-out, carry a coffin down Main Street, and shoot cap guns at bad guys in Wild West City.
Manasquan resident Pete Genovese is a feature writer for The (Newark, NJ) Star-Ledger and author of Roadside New Jersey, Jersey Diners, and The Great American Road Trip: US 1, Maine to Florida. Winner of various state press association awards, he was also nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for his Rwanda series. He oversees and writes the Munchmobile series, and authors a weekly food review column, "Eat with Pete."
