Clues are well designed and distributed along the room, so if you are (like me) come in a company of 8 people, there is plenty of room to work together on clues and not feel crowded. Clues are hard enough, but not impossible to crack. Highly recommend as fun weekend family activity, an anniversary outing, or even small office celebration.

This Rock is large, brownish and sturdy. It is nice looking so what else am I supposed to say it is a Rock. It is not like the Rock of Gibraltar. Don't hit it with your car. What? It's a rock, I think I am loosing my mind spending my time on this.

Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park

The history of the City of Paterson includes its beginnings as the ambitious project of Alexander Hamilton and the Society for Establishing Useful Manufacturers (S.U.M.) in 1792 at the Great Falls, the early development of water power systems for industrial use, and the various types of manufacturing that occurred in the District's mills into the 20th Century. These included cotton fabrics, railroad locomotives, textile machinery, jute, and silk spinning, weaving, and dyeing, among many others. The Great Falls also represents compelling stories of the lives of immigrants who labored in the mills, those who owned and operated manufacturing concerns and became wealthy, and the quest of laborers and the labor movement for better working conditions and pay. Immigrants still settle today in Paterson to pursue their versions of Hamilton's vision, creating a diverse and vibrant culture.

First time I visited the Falls was last year and I was pleasantly surprised. However, there was litter scattered about and the garbage baskets were overflowing. I don’t know if there are food carts, bathroom facilities or on site maintenance in the park but that may boost visitor attendance.

Brunswick Fairlawn Lanes

Reviewed By LWL3333 - Ridgewood, New Jersey

For over 20 years my office was only two doors down from this large bowling and entertainment place but I seldom set foot inside. Last week I took my two pre-teen grandsons there on a day when school was not in session and they had a good time bowling while I watched and cheered for them. Bowling has gotten expensive and there is no discount here for kids. Plenty of parking in their dedicated lot.

West Side Presbyterian Church

Reviewed By ERA818 - Woodland Park, New Jersey

Worshipful, quiet and enjoyable. Can be visited on weekdays,during office hours or at Sunday services (9:15 am, 10 am and 5:30 pm). Welcoming staff and welcoming congregation. As with any church there is no fee or expected contribution; of course contributions are well-received but not necessary at all to visit or attend services. Ask to see the public art gallery - adjacent to the main entrance. This church also has several acclaimed music programs. Ask about them or see the church website, "westside.org"

Gun For Hire is our favorite shooting range. The place is clean, well organized, and safe. Great place for any level of comfort. My husband is far more experienced than I am, but I would feel comfortable going here on my own. Everyone I've come in contact with is knowledgeable and helpful.

Great place to get REALLY FRESH chicken. No hormones, no antibiotics & the best tasting chicken. Once you've had it, you'll never want to purchase chicken from the supermarket again. The fresh eggs taste like the ones I used to have as a child (50 yrs ago) You can definitely tell the difference. incredibly friendly staff.

Lambert Castle

Reviewed By travelgalAvon - Avon, Connecticut

Nasty older lady at the front desk seemed bothered we were there.
$5 entrance fee for a self guided tour, A mishmash of art work, sculptures, furnishings and historical displays. The architecture of the home is stunning but there was no one to discuss this with.
The NY city skyline "view"?? Maybe if you were sitting on the roof. The trees have grown so large they obstruct a clear view so "peek-a boo" would be a more appropriate term
The grounds seem popular with wedding photographers as there were three there during our visit...but the very small court yards were underwhelming and without the city view as a backdrop (now that would be stunning) why bother?
