Huh? Wha? 🤷♂️ Yes, French 🇫🇷 emperor and supposed shortie Napoleon had a bro named Joe – who was the one-time king 👑 of Naples and Spain – who called good old Bordentown, New Jersey his hood. Crazy stuff! 😜 See, Joseph was escaping Europe – in disguise, no less 😎– after Nappy (that’s what he was called – look it up) surrendered in 1815. Joe initially first moved to Philly but after a couple years he got tired of looking at paradise 🔭 across the Delaware and settled into an 1,800 acre estate called Point Breeze (sounds like a cool Jersey club) in what is now called Bordentown. He had lots of parties 🎊 at the Point but eventually lost his sense and returned to Europe, where he no doubt spent the rest of his days pining away for his lost Jersey. 😢’tis a pity!
