Found it.®

"Last night I took a walk after dark
A swingin' place called Palisades Park
To have some fun and see what I could see."

Definitely not a swingin' part of Palisades Park. The amusement park was torn down many years ago.

Found as described. Eek! Where Rtes 1&9 met Rte 46! This is in the southeast side of the Broad Avenue overpass over Rte 46.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
