Freehold, NJ. My Hometown.

Storybook view at sunrise.

 

This is city that Springsteen blasted in his song "My Hometown". The song was written about a period 30-40 years ago when the main employer - a rug mill - closed and racial tension was in the air.

 

The city formed over 300 years ago. Its main employer today is the Monmouth County government.
