NJ is summed up in this quote.

"I am from NJ. I curse... a lot. I say "yo", and I say it often. I never had school on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. I sure as hell don't pump my own gas. I know what real pizza tastes like, and I know that a bagel is much more than a fuckin' roll with a hole in the middle. I judge people by what exit they get off the parkway. I can navigate a circle--with attitude. All good nights must end at a diner--preferably with cheese fries. It's a sub, not a hoagie or, worse yet, a hero, and I wash it down with soda, not pop. Two words... "mother fucker." I don't go to the beach, I go down the shore. And boardwalk brawls are just a part of the atmosphere. Yes, I drink cawfee. I know that 65mph really means 80. I've always lived within 10 minutes of a mall. When someone cuts me off, they get the horn AND the finger. And they expect it. I am from New Jersey, and damn proud of it."

east coast state, discriminated against by those who have been only as far as the outskirts of new york city. while new jersey has its fair share of cities, grime, and crime, a large portion consists of expansive suburbs, beautiful land, and farms.

brick, new jersey: second safest town in the nation.

home to bon jovi, bruce springsteen, catch 22, jay and silent bob (and several kevin smith films, including "dogma"), princeton university, the sopranos, and the celebrated "weird nj."

while accents and hairstyles vary, it is extremely rare that one falls into the stereotypical "joisey" caricature.

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.

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

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.

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.
