Weird NJ Signed by the Authors! Greetings friends and fellow travelers. Here it is-- twenty years in the making, hundreds of pictures taken, thousands of miles traveled, and tens of thousands of emails read--Weird NJ: THE BOOK! We don’t think that we need to tell you how proud we are of this, but suffice it to say, if we were not 100% satisfied with the final outcome, you never would have seen it. The book is a compilation of our travels over the past decade, a journal of adventures and a compendium of all that is weird in the state of New Jersey. There are old stories you may have read in previous issues of the magazine, many of which have been updated and added to. There are new stories that have never before been published in Weird NJ, or anywhere else to that matter. There are legends and lore that are brought into focus and put into perspective. It’s chocked full of the strange sites, crazy characters, odd roadside attractions and ancient artifacts that you’ve come to expect from Weird NJ. In short, if it’s weird and it’s in New Jersey, it’s most likely in this book! So join us now on our continuing adventure to seek out and document all the weird and wondrous things that this great state we are proud to call home has to offer. It is without a doubt the weirdest state of all, and we should know – we wrote the book! –Mark and Mark, Your Travel Guides to Weird NJ

The picture quality in the book itself is great as well, especially considering the price.
I enjoy heading out to some of these types of locations with a camera and tripod myself. I really have to look up to Rusty. He does justice to the feeling of stepping back in time, into a factory, or a house or school or any other building.
The sense of awe, and lonely emptiness when you step through the door.
Some people just see an empty building, an eye sore.
But to others, it's something far more wonderful. It's a step back in time, into lives and families of people long passed. You might stand in the center of a room, and picture the years rolling backwards. When you can feel every tear, and every smile. Every child born and raised, and every life passed and mourned.
It isn't just the cataloged, cold version of history you might find behind glass in a museum. It's something far more personal.
Reading it brought me back to my college days of "urban exploration" with friends---hunting down numberless abandoned diners, overgrown drive-ins and one hard-to-find Egg-O-Mat in Warren, and loving every minute of it. I look forward to more from Rusty Tagliareni, who--in his writing and non-portrait lensing, at least--has the makings of a great New Jersey chronicler.
