According to The Free Dictionary (Encyclopedia section), under "United

Tuckerton is in the southern part of New Jersey, in Ocean County off
the Garden State Parkway, near if not exactly in the Pinelands.
The site also list the tallest masts in the world (radio and TV
"towers" not officially called towers), identifying them by country
but not by state.
Here's the URL for that list:
I'm not familiar with any of the radio station/TV channel call
letters, so I doubt any of the ones that exceed 1,000 ft. are located
in NJ (my guess is that ones located in the US are mostly in the
mid-west or west, but I could be wrong).

Don't go climbing any towers or masts! :-)
I got a chuckle out of the discussion about possible "tall" buildings
in Trenton. The building where I work is in the heart of downtown. It
has seven stories and if the 6th floor cubicle where I spend each day
was located anywhere *near* a window I know I could see out over most
of the city and across the Delaware into PA! There are a few
buildings that are several stories taller than Capital Center (where I
work), but all in all, the Trenton skyline isn't very dramatic
height-wise. I honestly don't know how many stories are in the
tallest occupied structure. More research needs to be done! :-)
