1.  There are technically 18 exits on the NJ Turnpike.  It spans from Exit 1 at the Delaware Memorial Bridge all the way to Exit 18, at the George Washington Bridge. When you take into account the exits with multiple exchanges (7 and 7a for example), the actual number is 28.

2.  Resorts Atlantic City was the first to open its doors in Atlantic City in 1978.

6.  For roughly 70 years, Bergen County has had blue laws that prohibit the sale of most retail items.
