Last week’s ‘Where‘ was too dam easy for six readers.

They recognized it right away as the Shadow Lake spillway on Hubbard Avenue in the River Plaza section of Middletown.

If you don’t know it, the structure has the words ‘Shadow Lake’ embedded in it in tile.

Sue Noone, Pete DeFazio, Jenn Woods and the Colmorgens all knew it. Walter Cuje did, too; he tells us it’s the first place he ever caught a fish, 43 years ago. Michael McMahon says he used to take visitors out to see it.

Thanks to all who wrote in. Readers curious about man-made Shadow Lake’s place in the Navesink River watershed might be interested in ‘The Navesink Watershed: a Short History’ by Kate Keelen and Jerry Keelen. Download navesink_history_keelens.pdf
