NOTES

There are a couple Raritans in the state, so it's impossible to know which one Dave Van Ronk's finger landed on for the lyric, but this spot is a gorgeous reflection of the name— spanning the Rarity River, right at the edge of the beautiful and must-visit Duke Farms, is the Nevius Sitting Bridge, an 1886 structure with the castle-like water pumping station on the north end of the span.
