The historic Raritan Bay stretches from Staten Island to Sandy Hook, including the beach communities of Monmouth County. With its proximity to New York City and Jersey shore attractions, the bay region has been the setting for compelling moments throughout American history. The native Lenapes harvested oysters and fished the waters along the bayshore generations before Dutch and English colonists reached their coasts. Local slave Titus Cornelius, or Colonel Tye, escaped from bondage and led Loyalist forces in raids to destabilize the area during the Revolutionary War. Steamships traversed the bay carrying hordes of vacationers from New York to newly established resorts along the "Riviera of New Jersey" in the early twentieth century. Climb aboard as author John Schneider takes readers on a historical journey across Raritan Bay.
