A couple of weeks ago, we talked about how the New York State rest stops along the Thruway were getting an upgrade with some great new food choices like Chick Fil-A and Shake Shack, along with fixing up the rest stops themselves. Well, now New Jersey is getting into the rest stop game. Jersey is set to honor some of their most famous native sons and daughters. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority just approved new Garden State Parkway rest stops named after such big names as Jon Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, Frank Sinatra, and Celia Cruz. Other famous New Jersey natives getting rest stops include James Gandolfini, Connie Chung, Toni Morrison, Judy Blume and baseball player Larry Doby. The new service areas, done in conjunction with the New Jersey Hall of Fame, will feature artifacts, memorabilia and exhibits, as well as video monitors showcasing Hall of Fame inductees. Here in NYS we have the New Baltimore rest stop, the Ramapo, The Modena and Sloatsburg. While they are all named after the towns and cities they are in, the Frank Sinatra rest stop does sound cooler!
