In this episode of City Between we go in search of New York’s ur-city, its ancient origin… in New Jersey. Just across the bay once lied the small village of Communipaw where the first Dutch in habitants made their home. Made into a legend 200 years later by Washington Irving, we follow in his footsteps another 200 years along to explore the lost village’s legends and look for its remains.
The music for the episode was composed by the talented Dylan Thurston.
On this visit to Communipaw we began at the Liberty Science Center at the base of Communipaw Avenue and walked up the hill and back down. Here’s a Google Map location of Historic Communipaw:
