The region of Southern New Jersey, close to Philadelphia, generally middle to upper- middle class.
Often credited by inhabitants only for its convenience stores & (other) inhabitants, who (according to the former) apparently are all assholes.
Political opinion varies per town. Per acre, really. Far left, walk a few blocks, far right.
Highly suburban areas place great emphasis on the youth commmunity, with its good public schooling & numerous trashy high-class shopping outlets.
Most adults aged 30+ are in the suburbs to raise a family. Often through a lifetime of hard work, Baby Boomers settle in a 'nice neighborhood' in SJ only to yield offspring not nearly as disciplined or adept to the outside world.
Most youths who complain about South Jersey stay there, due to inactivity developed from years of complaining.
Most youths, for better and for worse, fall into social categories. Devotion to these labels vary.
Grass covers the highway medians, which is more than North Jersey can say. Wooods still line roads & backyards, and parks, lakes, & pines are but a short drive away.
Rednecks still prevail on the outskirts of suburbia.
A generally nice place to live & grow up.
One of the best places to live in the world in terms of safety, economy, environment, education, etc.
We still complain though. it's not perfect.
North: Hi, I'm from North Jersey.
South: Hi, I'm from South Jersey.
N: Wanna get a sub at the Quick Stop?
S: No, I've got a hoagie from WaWa.
N: I didn't know you liked cold cuts.
S: No, I like lunchmeat.
N: Did you see that show in NYC?
S: No, I saw one in Philly.
N: How do you say 'water'?
N: OMG! What about 'coffee'?
(Conversation continues with discussions on which region has superior food and whether Central Jersey exists.)
(Wow; most of the bracketed words are filthy!)
Someone else: "North Jersey, you?"
Me: "South Jersey"
Someone else: "That's cool, want to go to Quick Chek??"
Me: "Hell no, I'll road trip to the nearest Wawa!!"
South Jersey guy: yea
Stupid douche bag not from jersey: where's your accent
South Jersey guy: go to hell
