2022 - It was the year I finally climbed Snake Hill in the Meadowlands.
Finally toured the LaMonica Fine Foods scungilli canning facility in Millville.
Finally carried out my idea to host a water pistol re-enactment of the Hamilton-Burr duel on the Weehawken cliffs.
And, amazingly, watched the St. Peter's University men's basketball team advance to the NCAA Elite Eight.
And that just scratches the surface of a year that flew by like the blur of traffic past the Jon Bon Jovi (I'm still calling it Cheesequake) Service Area.
The depth and variety of stories I did for "Brian's Positively New Jersey" this year begs the question – “Just how much can you fit into just one short year, in one small state?"
As I look back on another year exploring all things positively New Jersey, I realize the answer is pretty mind-blowing.
News 12 New Jersey presents the annual "Brian's Positively New Jersey Year in Review,” a highlight reel of some of my favorite moments - and hopefully some of yours - from the past 12 months.
It's hard to imagine 2023 as full of amazing stories as the year that just passed. But then again, that's exactly what I said to myself last year. Happy New Year!
