Our Own Road to Nowhere!

The Road to Nowhere!



Manahawkin's Road to Nowhere
A View of the Route 72 Causeway to Long Beach Island, from what's left of the Bridge to Nowhere in Manahawkin

This road starts out as Stafford Avenue, off of Hilliard Boulevard.  As you head east, you'll run out of pavement you'll find yourself on Manahawkin's (Stafford Township) Road to Nowhere.  At the end of the Road to Nowhere, there used to be a bridge.  It was constructed some 50 years by New Jersey Bell to access  telephone poles across the salt marsh.  The bridge has been vandalized over the years and actually set on fire a couple of times.  Can you guess the name of the bridge...that would be the Bridge to Nowhere!
.

 

There's not much to do down the Road to Nowhere...watch the birds, enjoy the scenery, take photos and watch the world go by!

 

And for those of you who immediately thought this blog was about David Byrne and the Talking Heads...here you go! (Sans Talking Heads)
..
(You have to dance like those back up singers on Manahawkin's Road to Nowhere!)
