Down Jersey

Dorchester Yards, Dorchester, NJ

Once a hub of boatbuilding, even during WWII when PT boats, for example, were built here.  There is still some repair work at the yards in Dorchester and Leesburg, but little if any boatbuilding.  This is an area of New Jersey, down along the bay, that is not well known even in the state itself.  Closer in culture to Delaware and the Eastern Shore across the bay, it feels like the end of the world when you are way out on the marsh with sound of the tide rushing in or out.
