This Is The Most Oddly Named Town In New Jersey
A website that helps people choose where to live has compiled a list of the "Most Oddly-Named Towns in Each U.S. State." Estately.com says they "scoured dozens of maps to locate the strangest (town names)."
"Winners" included Ding Dong, TX, Big Bottom, WA, Pie Town, NM, and Satans Kingdom, MA.
A list of the "odd" town names in New Jersey included "Brick, Buttzville, Cheesequake, Cinnaminson, Deal, Egg Harbor City, Great Meadows, Hackensack, Ho-Ho-Kus, Leisure Village, Loveladies, Manahawkin, Mantoloking, Nutley, Oldmans, Ramtown, Scullville, Seagirt, Six Mile Run, Skillman, Spotswood, Succasunna, and Teaneck," but Estately.com says that the oddest of all is Foul Rift.
According to Wikipedia, Foul Rift, NJ is "an unincorporated community...located within White Township, in Warren County" along the Delaware River. The town has a beautiful view of Martins Creek Power Station.
A 2008 article on NJ.com says the town was named "for the tempestuous rapids on that stretch of the Delaware." The article also says that most of the town's homes were destroyed by floods between 2004-2006.
