Where In Long Valley: Yep, It's the Eagle

First week's contest not very challenging for residents.

We launched Where In Long Valley this week as a way for readers and residents to come together and try to solve a puzzle as one.

Apparently, .

The first person to leave a comment, Susan Ort, pegged the location of the photo in one shot: It's the top of the letter Y in "Liberty" .

So, congratulations Susan!

(We'll be looking into the fine print to see if Orts are allowed to participate in the game, considering they know everything about this town. Just kidding! Come one, come all!)

It was obviously a learning experience for us, as well. We hoped to not take readers too far off the beaten path, but still wanted to make the photo challenging.

But, we see our readers clearly mean business. 

So, check back next week to weigh in a new photo and location. 

And this time, it won't be so easy.

Where in Schooley's Mountain? not Long Valley......

Good point. The municipality is actually called Washington Township... the Long Valley section is in the valley, not on the top of the mountain

Hey Claudia and Hookerman, Thanks for the comments. As we mentioned back in Sept. 2010, when the site launched, we decided to call it Long Valley Patch even though we cover everything inside Washington Township's borders (and sometimes outside of it, too). Why did we do that? A couple reasons: -- There are four municipalities in New Jersey named Washington Township, and we didn't want to confuse readers. -- Living here for more than 20 years, I've learned that residents from the Hackettstown, Port Murray, Califon, and Schooley's Mountain sections of town still refer to themselves as "Long Valley" residents (maybe it's because of the school?). So, those are some of the basic reasons for why we refer to much of what goes on here as Long Valley, and not break it down into specific zip codes. Hope this helps!
