This was the place as it stood circa 1987. I am not going to write a long history of New Jersey’s “The Barn” but I will say by this time Jimmy and Dennis Kane and their family had sold the house and the only way to ride The Barn (with out electricity from the house) was to tear down some walls and put in a couple of sky lights.
Soon after this photo was taken nine of us all at once would be arrested for trespassing and the police subsequently chained up the ramp until the new owners came and knocked it down.
