NOTES

Just west of Asbury Park, and once briefly "home" to the legendary Bruce Springsteen (he was crashing at a surfboard factory in town around 1970, after getting evicted from his Asbury Park apartment), Wanamassa is part of Ocean Township and is mostly just a relaxed, residential neighborhood. Unlike Fair Play or Swinesburg, unincorporated communities that have all but vanished, Wanamassa still maintains its own Fire Department and its name is present around the area.

Still early in the project when finding the written name was a major component to us, we were treated to the cherry trees in full bloom as we visited the Wanamassa Elementary School.

Could have at least made sure the branches weren't covering the name, ya knucklehead.
