ommon misconceptions:
#1: new jersey is an industrial dump
while its true we have industry, its only near the border, we keep the inside nice and awsome , the industry just keeps the evil newyorkers and pennsylvanians from getting in
#2: we say joisey
no, only new yorkers drop the "new" and forget the "r"
#3 we are all poor and ugly

The best state in the Union.The land of diners,greenheads,and Soccer.Those who make fun of it are either jealous or have never been here and would prefer to live in whatever cornball state they're currently in.

-For the last time,NO ONE SAYS "JOISEY"!!OK?Not even people in north Jersey.Most of us have a Philadelphian sounding dialect.

-No mullets either,ok?

-Many of us love Soccer,and Jerseyans are the best Soccer players in the US.(Tim Howard,Claudio Reyna.Both play in England)

-Knock it off with the stupid toxic waste and turnpike jokes,they're both unfunny and incorrect.If you REALLY want to make a Jerseyan laugh ask us what our longest time staying in a diner was or something like that.

-"Jersey girls" do not look like cheap whores with 80's-looking hair.They are usually gorgeous Italian girls,however they sometimes smoke too much and should cut that out.

-NJ smells like leaves and trees,thats about it.

-Ok,there's some shitholes here,i'll admit.(like with any place).But most of the state is beautiful and it's a great place to live.

-Douchebags like Jay Leno need to stop with the corny NJ jokes before I make some South Jersey chick beat his ass.

-One of the few places you'll find people who are of half-Irish and half-Italian descent.
There's no other girls like South Jersey girls.They're hot,funny,Italian,and dangerous.

The small country thats a state. We have everything the rest of the country has. Think about it.

In New Jersey, you could watch the sun rise on the east coast, and watch it set on the west. You can climb a mountain in the morning, swim in the ocean in the afternoon, and get robbed at gunpoint in Newark by night. It's the only state where massive oil refineries and dairy farms are only a few miles apart. You a crazy busy industrious North, and a more set back relaxed south. Last, but not least, you can always be sure that where ever you are, a 24-hour diner is near by.

I recently moved to NJ from Connecticut. I came here knowing and pretty much believing all of the negative stereotypes about NJ (like "NJ - the armpit of America" -- one of my personal favorites). But I had NEVER ACTUALLY BEEN THERE. Alot of others on this site have done an excellent job of debunking the myths about NJ & its people, so I'll just add this: I'm a million times happier in this state than I ever was or could be in CT and so is just about everybody I know. Nuff said? I'm so glad I'm no longer the superficial, mean, bigoted, insecure tight ass that I was in CT.
The Garden State (NJ nickname)
"NJ - Keeping It Real" (unofficial motto)
Join the Human Race -- move to New Jersey (my advice)
A bit-o-history: Some statesman in the 1700s compared NJ to an immense barrel, filled with good things to eat and open at both ends, with Pennsylvanians grabbing from one end and the New Yorkers from the other. Perhaps PA & NY have drained the periphery areas of NJ so much that they are now the blight that gives NJ such a bad rap. Just a thought.

Where I live. The greatest state in the nation, with the greatest hockey team in North America, the Devils. And the factories are only in the semi-circles around New York and Philadelphia-the rest is pure bliss. Plus, this state is home to one of the greatest universities in the world, Princeton University. NJ rules!!!
Typical moron: Yo dawg, Noo Jerzee's nuthin' but gross, yo!

one of the nation's 6th most wealthy states that many people have misconceptions of. usually stereotyped as smelly, dirty, and unclean, yet that only makes up about 5% of the area of the state. other 95% includes scenic river valleys, picture-perfect suburbs, rolling farmland, sandy beaches, and bustling nightlife
"I would drive around New Jersey to get to New York because it smells."
is a terrible misconception.

not the land fill of new york, do your research. new york pays new jersey to take the garbage, and then send it over to staten island. only smells abnormal around new york and phili, and people only think that because they aren't from the area. no other state is so abundant in 24-hour diners, and home of the world's largest strip mall (a.k.a. route 22).
jersey is the best state ever, and yes, I have lived in Oregon, Ohio, and New York, and visited over 20 others

Best place in the U.S. People who are haters either haven't really been here or are just know-it-all's from the rest of the 49 states that can't compare. Take one step into Jersey and you're hooked- learn to drive or you aren't going to survive. And cut it out with all that "joisey" talk. People who use stereotypes gotta get a clue.
