NJ Mining Museum – Ogdensburg NJ

Visit the Mining Museum In Ogdensburg NJ The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is located in Ogdensburg, Sussex County, New Jersey.  The museum was opened in 1989 at the site of the Sterling Hill Mine which was the last working underground mine in New Jersey. Mining began at the site in 1730, when it was mistakenly thought to be a copper deposit.[3] George III of the United Kingdom granted the property to William Alexander, titled Lord Stirling. Stirling sold it to Robert Ogden in 1765. It went through several owners until the various mines were combined into the New Jersey Zinc Company in 1897. The mine closed in 1986 due to a tax dispute with the town, which foreclosed for back taxes in 1988 and auctioned the property to Richard and Robert Hauck for $750,000. (read more here)

Parkour Gym in NJ – NJ parkour Academy

NJ Parkour & Freerunning Facility Here is another first for New Jersey.

Parkour (French pronunciation: [paʁˈkuʁ]) (abbreviated PK), also called "the art of displacement",[1] is a training discipline of movement and holistic well-being[2]. The simplest way to visualize parkour is that of street gymnastics;[3] while this may describe the closely related activity freerunning, it misses the practical philosophy of parkour.[citation needed] Practitioners aim to move quickly and efficiently through their environment using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves, negotiating obstacles in between.
