Edgewater, NJ: A Riverside Borough, With Quirks
Factoring out the river and skyline, Edgewater looks like a conventional suburb. It has cookie-cutter housing complexes, and shopping malls with big-box stores. The constant rumble of new buildings under construction is a love song to commuters settling there for the convenience and value, relative to New York.
But this borough of 12,000 has plenty of quirks. Just down the road from Jack’s Lobster Shack, perched on utility poles, are giant birds’ nests, built by members of a colony of Quaker parrots that arrived in Edgewater more than 40 years ago. The parrots are believed to have escaped from their shipping crate at Kennedy Airport in the late 1960s, eventually making their way to New Jersey.
