Springsteen's Local Hero song inspired at this site.

This was the site of the J.J. Newberry Department Store. The following account about the 1992 song Local Hero on Bruce Springsteen's Lucky Town album is from the wonderful treatise, Greetings from Freehold, by David Wilson, at http://www.scribd.com/doc/68188252/Greetings-from-Freehold-Full-Text at p. 29: the song's narrator is driving through his hometown and sees a black velvet painting of himself in a store window. That happened to Bruce one day as he passed the J.J. Newberry department store on Main Street, where a CVS pharmacy is now located. He parked the car, entered the store and asked the clerk who the person in the painting was. She replied: 'Oh, just a local hero.'
