Comments and Notes
NAME: Captain Cornelius Jacobsen Mey (Dutch explorer who founded Cape May)
SPONSOR: Citizens/residents -- Carin Feddermann
LOCATION: As of late August, 2008, the memooral has been removed from its earlier, 8/27/2000 survey. Of note, during 2008 the Washington Street Mall was renovated, and a local merchant suggested it had likely been changed in that process. Information welcomed.
