  • NJ is a weird place in many senses. Since high school, I would spend a lot of my time exploring spots that @weirdnjinsta would cover. No location was too far to take a random drive to, from the Pine Barrens to the Gates of Hell to the Profanity Houses. From there, I started taking even longer road trips to abandoned psych wards in upstate New York and burning ghost towns in Centralia, Pennsylvania. I grew up in a place with not much happening and, while I can’t say I stayed out of trouble in almost any sense in those days, this helped keep me occupied (if breaking into abandoned places is considered “not getting into trouble”... I think it’s one of the more healthy kinds of “risky behavior”🤷🏼‍♀️). Anyway, I talk about Weird NJ all the time, as evidenced by many posts here over the years. In fact, I never really thought about it, but I can probably credit that magazine with really jumpstarting my interest in photography. Creepy, odd, abandoned places were my go-to photo subjects for a long time (and still are) before I started focusing more on music. So with that said, I will continue to rep my weird homies across the coast and hope that little punk kids will keep searching for new, weird shit over there, and everywhere. Stay strange, NJ.🖤

  • turn out the lights, curl up somewhere cozy, & click the link in my bio to listen to the first episode of DOUBLE DATE WITH DEATH! in this episode each of us tells a tale of an early experience in our lives that kindled our interest in the unknown. though we are all skeptics and hesitate to call these experiences paranormal, they are definitely unexplainable and will give you the heebie jeebies!! have a listen, tell me what you think about my crustacean dream visitors, and make sure you follow @doubledatewithdeath for more updates!

  • 🎶Picture yourself at the shore in New Jersey 
A pachyderm building that’s six stories high.
Known as America’s oldest attraction,
An elephant with windows for eyes.
Lucy on the beach in Margate, ah ah 🎶

Lucy’s up in my TeePublic shop! Link in bio. 🐘

  • Harsh summer sunlight combined with shadows from the overpass made it a little hard to get a photo with this guy, but we managed. Fun Fact: this muffler man in Jersey City, NJ made a cameo on the opening credits for ‘The Sopranos’. 🧔🏻💪🏻🧰 #missmalotsbigadventure

  • Did you know that Lucy the Elephant is operated by a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization called the Save Lucy Committee which has a volunteer-based executive board?? This week's spotlight is the one and only Bob who has been a part of the Lucy team for 18 years!  In that time he has served as a parking ambassador, tour guide, assistant director, volunteer, trustee, board president, (breathe)..... and now as our Board treasurer. One of the many things Bob likes to share with our guests is that Lucy faces the ocean because when she was built in 1881 there was more ocean traffic than land traffic!  In fact, Lucy can be seen by ships from 8 miles out at sea!  Thanks, Bob, for sticking by Lucy’s side all these years. #elephantlove #lucytheelephant #elephanteer #staff #volunteer #spotlight #whataboutbob #nationalhistoriclandmark #roadsideattraction #weirdnj #visitnj #doac #everybodylovesbob

  • Does anyone else in Jersey know about this insane truck driving around?  I caught it parked in Teaneck, tucked in a parking lot, and had to flip a bitch and check it out!  I mean this thing is huge!  #lifesize #lunchatopaskyscraper #weirdnj

Corner of Palisade Ave and Cedar Ln across from that BOA! #dsslaw #rollingjustice
