There is a memorial to the Hindenburg, with an outline of the ship where it fell, in chain. Cant get this gd tablet to work,but google lakhurst historical society. Its near t h e big blimp hanger.
The local papers, asbury park press, once claimed the concrete still showed burn marks, but that was a while ago. Every now and then sombody finds a twisted chunk of alumi num and claims its from Hindenburg, some of them prove true. A lot of Morro Castle stuff around also, but less all the time.
The blimp hangers and the catapult test tracks are easily identifiable from the air. Ewr-iad by rj or prop is best, since t hey fly lower. I took flying lessons out of Lakewood, but was always too busy to sightsee!
Sandy Hook is also chock full of history. There is a neat memorial to Lt. Halliburton and crew, killed in SH bay while looking for deserters from HMS Assistance, Dec 31, 1783, when the Brits were evacuating NYC.
Fennimore cooper wrote a novel about priveteers in Atlantic Highlands, which is why AH has so many sailboats named Sea Witch!
