A rural, back woods, wide-spread town in Northwestern NJ made up of wealthy expensive baby boomer homeowners and farms, hick drunks, drunk kids of hick drunks, bored teenagers hanging out at the A&P or Dairy Queen, and spoiled students at Blair Academy, an expensive, snobby private school whose beautiful campus starts in downtown where there are a dozen rich shops for the more fortunate.
A lot of out of town visitors end up in Blairstown by accident, lost on their way to area attractions: the Delaware Water Gap, Weird NJ explorers looking for the Paulinskill Viaduct, hikers headed to the Appalachian trail which runs through part of the town, families headed to the Land of Make Believe, a theme park water park in the middle of nowhere that's actually in Hope, but the towns are thought of as the same.
Beautiful landscape but less than beautiful townies that are perpetually stuck and drunk in this odd town because they're bored out of their mind in this town and have nothing to do but smoke weed and get drunk in the woods.
But Never buy bud in B-town- you’ll be overcharged and get nothing but seeds. The good stuff comes from dealers in PA or go way back to civilization closer to the city.
"Friday the 13th" was filmed in Blairstown in parts of downtown by Blair Academy, a spooky cemetery, the Blairstown Diner and Camp NoBeBoSco (Boy Scout camp). This gives the town an even creepier feel once you watch the movie once or twice.
Townie: Let's go smoke a blunt downtown Blairstown at Blair.
Child: Mom Can we go to the Land of Make Believe in Blairstown (that's really in Hope)
