Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and the ACTUAL Jersey Shore!

Hello, again!

     I'm so happy you guys are joining me on this journey!  Thank you for taking the time to listen to the articles I've written.

     This week, we learn about Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his recent prison sentence, and I've also thrown in some historical tidbits about the Jersey Shore itself! (No, not that Jersey Shore - the actual vacation spot located in Central and South New Jersey!)

     One of the amazing discoveries I made throughout this week's research was that one of the pivotal scenes in the movie Annie was shot in Wilson Hall at Monmouth State University!  I included some photos below.  I knew that some other scenes from Annie were filmed here, but I had no idea that Daddy Warbucks' mansion was part of one of New Jersey's universities!  Check it out!


Thanks, Brookworms!  See you soon!
