What’s the Correct Way to Pronounce the Name of this South Jersey Town? [POLL]
The community has it’s own Zip Code. 08092.
When representing the ol` “092”, most of the locals pronounce the town’s name as “West Crick.” It’s spelled West Creek. I pronounce it just like it’s spelled, “West Creek.”
West Creek is located in Eagleswood Township in the southern part of Ocean County. According to a Facebook page, “The village is named after the stream that runs through it, West Creek. The name “West Creek” is derived from the Lenape word “westeconk,” meaning “place of fat meat”.”
