It’s the little things you remember when you were growing up. For instance, there was a time when there was no McDonald’s on the Garden State Parkway. I remember when this quasi-rest stop was new.
It had a vibrant Mickey D’s display with a bunch of characters. I thought it was ironic that the law enforcement character was behind bars, but I know it was probably for his own protection.
Even though I go here almost never, the McDonald’s near exit 142 on the GSP will always hold a special place in my heart.
I just hope they keep the caged Officer Big Mac forever.
