DE and NJ do share a very small land border due to the "12 Mile circle."

Halpie - joined not just by the I-295 bridge. There are 3 small parcels of Delaware land on the east (NJ) side of the river.

Managed to get SC just in the nick of time. Was surprised by that, but it was the only state left alphabetically.

Well crap, didn't even notice it was alphabetical. I mean, of course it was, cause it pretty much always is, but I was so confused trying to figure out what the heck state it could be after guessing all the (I thought) obvious ones that I didn't even notice.

I'm so glad you mentioned this. I am a native Rhode Islander and almost no one seems to recognize this. Long Island, NY is super close to Block Island, RI.

Interesting that both Delaware and New Jersey would make the list if not for their weird, quirky border.
