New Jersey Turnpike Rest Area Answers

As I prepare for the next weekend in New York, here are the answers to the quiz on the New Jersey Turnpike. If you're in Syosset on Saturday, stop by and buy something at the big yard sale!

You'll note, I did not include mile markers for the location of the rest areas. Nor did I ask you who the entire Turnpike is named for. For extra credit, you could have offered the name of a famous New York radio personality who lobbied then Governor Christine Todd Whitman to name one of its plazas for him. He instead got one on Interstate 295, which has since been closed.
