New Jersey is home to a growing number of warehouses, distribution centers and storage facilities. This is because of the state’s location and transportation options.
News 12 New Jersey’s Brian Donohue had a chance to check out one of these centers in Oakland that has been dubbed “The Vault” – a 600,000-cubic-foot warehouse that feels like it could be considered New Jersey’s attic.
“The Vault” has 6-inch thick fire and hurricane proof concrete walls and houses millions of items. School records from 88 New Jersey school districts dating back nearly a century are held there, along with some Porsches, Ferraris, hundreds of garment racks containing costumes for the New York Metropolitan Opera. Even Miss Piggy is housed there.
“Those are the Muppets. Those are the actual puppets,” says Gregory Copeland with FileBank, Inc.
