No Springsteen service area?

Gulper Eel: No Springsteen service area?


It's tough...So tough...

Gulper Eel: No Springsteen service area?


He politely declined.

Thinking about becoming a "Save our Cheesequake!" crank and starting some sort of protest.
 
2021-07-27 8:44:53 PM  
Obviously some very different services offered. I'm guessing hair care at the Bon Jovi.
 
2021-07-27 8:47:29 PM  
Does it have a hitching post I can tie my steel horse up to?
 
2021-07-27 8:49:24 PM  
Don't even ask about the James Gandolfini service stop. You were never there.
 
2021-07-27 8:52:42 PM  
The orange juice at the James Gandolfini Rest Stop is the kind with some pulp.

The Frank Sinatra Service Area provides one for your baby and one more for the road.

Heard you can get an 8-ball at the Whitney Houston stop
 
2021-07-27 9:43:53 PM  
There's an app now that tells you when you're half way there.
 
2021-07-27 10:42:17 PM  
I don't know about now, but back in the 90's the Garden State Parkway was a shiatty intrastate road. So many potholes, but it was the easiest way to get to Atlantic City.

Uh, training bras and mini-pads at the Judy Blume service area?

Cheesequake... hey thats the name of my Bon Jovi tribute band!
 
2021-07-27 10:44:39 PM  
Am I the only one thinking that "Cheesequake" sounds like some shiatty ridiculous dessert at Applebee's?
 
2021-07-27 10:45:07 PM  
These aren't really rest stops. More like dead ends.
 
2021-07-27 10:47:03 PM  
Larry Doby was a cool guy. I used to run into him at cappy's corner convenience store here in Montclair back in the 90's.
 
2021-07-27 10:47:05 PM  
I'm sure there are plenty of women and at least a few men that wouldn't mind servicing Jon Bon Jovi's area.

You mean the local restaurant that's food is..eh..but is regularly voted as having some of the best ice cream/candy in the state?

They spent too much money on the Whitney Houston service area. You might say it's underwater.

/yep! A door!

James Gandolfini had a heart attack ack ack ack ack ack 
You oughta know by now
 
2021-07-27 10:51:58 PM  
It's made of lipstick, plastic and paint. A touch of sable for the lines.
 
2021-07-27 10:54:27 PM  
Yes but which one has the best glory holes?

Most people don't remember the Vince Lombardi Service Center except, perhaps, from the Dead Milkmen song, but it was a real place with all kinds of very cool memorabilia.  Something happened, though, and they took it all away.  I was driving up to NYC in '96 or so for work and planned to stop there to shoot a couple of pictures for a friend that was a Packers fan but everything inside was gone and only one small sign remained.  Later someone told me that so much prostitution was happening there that Lombardi's family took it all down.  Not sure if that is the real story.

Don't fark with Clara barton

It's still there. It was recently renovated. That's on the Turnpike, not the Parkway.

I'd like to propose as Fark cannon that Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary are interchangeable ala Hellen Keller/Anne Frank/Amelia Earhart, because I looked at that for a minute thinking, "What does Judy Blume have to do with New Jersey?  She's based out of Washington state."
 
2021-07-27 11:08:45 PM  
The prostitution part is true. And JerseyTim is correct: It's on the NJTP, not the GSP.
 
2021-07-27 11:09:21 PM  
No matter where you go in Jersey, it's halfway theeeeere.  Ooooohhhh, living on a prayer!

What, no Glen Danzig rest stop?

He politely declined.


Not sure why this has three funny votes: https://www.northjersey.com/story/new​s​/transportation/2021/07/27/garden-stat​e-parkway-rest-stops-named-famous-peop​le-nj/5390649001/

"Bruce Springsteen respectfully declined to have a service area named after him," said New Jersey Hall of Fame spokeswoman Natasha Alagarasan. "It should be noted, though, that Bruce has been very supportive of the New Jersey Hall of Fame over the years, and is very much a part of the fabric of the Hall."

I am saddened by the lack of a Danny DeVito Service Area so I can get my Rum Ham recharged.

New Jersey service areas? Are those like spots with some pre-dug shallow graves, bags of lime, a pile of dirt and a few shovels?

I mean, in addition to having seen a million faces and rocking them all, Jon Bon Jovi does some nice things to feed and house people.
