I always preferred Cape May to Atlantic City. Not as commerical, crowded, and more quaint.

The population could not quadruple per square mile (it seems you're speaking more on just cramming people into spaces w/o accounting for infrastructure). NJ doesn't have a lot of open space left as it is. 1100 per sq mi in a state of ~8,700 is ridiculous. 4x that would make us denser than Tokyo from top to bottom.

Would you want NJ to experience even half of the growing rates GA is seeing?
No way

Why do people even mention Camden when talking about NJ? It's a small, very poor town, and a very insignificant municipality overall. Nobody goes there, honestly.

Nah............. It's part of NJ. Why not? The problem arises when people correlate a small town to an entire state of 8 1/2 million. Camden is insignificant, but part of NJ nonetheless.
There are multiple bad neighborhoods in cities who claim to be safe double the size of Camden.
No shame in my game.

Isn't Camden the second or third most famous city in New Jersey??? Behind Newark obviously, and maybe Atlantic City.....
