But getting off sports for a minute how about some more GA/ NJ comparisons?

Like GA has the better looking women IMO
But Jersey for sure has better weed.... Lol

There are definately some fine women in the ATL but there is just something special about a Jersey Girl

What state has the best overall skylines? If you were to compare the top 5 largest cities in each state......

Any pictures of Newark, Trenton, Camden, or Patterson skylines....... I've seen Atlantic City and Jersey City before, but somebody can post them again to compare to the GA skylines....

Do views also count, you could easily argue the views NJ has of NYC and Philly are the best in the country

NJ would win easily over GA if NYC or Philly were included...

I meant if you were to compare Atlantic City, Newark, Patterson, Jersey City, Trenton, Camden, vs Columbus, Macon, Atlanta, Savannah, and Augusta....

Atlanta would obviously be the top, as for the remainder of GA none really stick out though love Savannah on the whole. (but i have never been to Augusta or Columbus)

In Jersey - JC is very interesting these days but much smaller than Atlanta. Newark has a decent core of density but seems to have little distinguishable architecture or height. AC is getting better and has some interesting buildings, especially at night (believe the new Revel Casino the tallest casino in the world exclduding the tower of the Stratosphere), Trenton is pretty ho hum, Paterson to me is distinguished by soviet block type teneament houses for a skyline and not much else. Camden is really a clock tower and a very ugly and tall prject that greets you at the bottom of the Ben Franklin Bridge. I will say the issue with JC, Paterson, and Newark is you basically always see the NYC skyline in the distance, or really right on top of it for JC. And with Camden Philly is really the draw to the eye, On Trenton there are actually places where you can see both Philly and Trenton but they are fewer without the dwarfing effect.


As an aside places like Ft Lee, Wildwood, or Morristown (even Cape May purely on architecture not on height) may be more interesting than some of the Jersey skyline mentioned.

I do, but as we are not yet on Jersey's level with the Latina's we have made some huge strides on that dept. over the last 15-20 years. It started with Mexicans like right before the Olympics and has exploded with even some Ricans and good number of Dominicans recently. Even in some small towns in North GA a good minute from Atlanta the Hispanic population has exploded.

given the number of Hispanics in Florida. Even NY had a very large Hispanic population going back to the 50s and 60s. Back then, it was mostly Puerto Ricans, although as you know, they are US citizens, and can travel back and forth easily. Most of our ads and signs, including the voting machines, were in English and Spanish.

I wonder why the Hispanic population hasn't migrated to Georgia given it borders Florida?
