Here are four tidbits related to Hudson County's Snake Hill:
(1) SECAUCUS, FROM. SISKAKES OR SIKAKES
the place where the snake hides. The Indian name for Snake Hill, now transferred to the upland between Pinhorne Creek and Hackensack river.
(2) AUTHOR: McGarrity, Mark.
TITLE: Whatever you call it, Snake Hill endures.

QUOTE: Traffic-chopper jocks call it "Fraternity Rock" because of all the graffiti splashed on its flanks. Hudson County says it's "Laurel Hill." Historians? They prefer "Snake Hill," while noting that other monikers have been applied to the Secaucus promontory: "Long Neck" was one (maybe for all the beer bottles that now lie smashed in its former quarry) and "Mt. Pinhorne" for a 17th century owner.
