No! People outside of NJ have only heard of it because per capita, it has I think the highest crime rate in the country.

But it is NOT anything even remotely close to a large city. It's tiny, and offers really nothing.

People from other states mistake it to be some sort of "hub" but it's not, at all. Then when they hear about the crime rates there, they throw that in NJ's face.

Unlike in other states, 80% of NJ's residents live in the SUBURBS. This is where NJ differs from the vast majority of the other 49 states. This is what a lot of people don't understand. It's different here. And by the way, our suburbs are right at or near the tops in terms of safety/lack of crime, and school systems.

NJ offers a really high quality of life. Honestly, that's why its costly to live here.

That is very true about Camden. Not all capitals of states are the hub of the state. How many people across the country think NYC is the capital of NY? When you put Albany against NYC, well, no comparison. Same thing.

I really don't understand that other poster's animosity, and ignorance, towards NJ. NY and NJ have a lot of similarities, and well, compliment each other.

Camden is not the capital- You're thinking of Trenton.

Trenton is one of the most important capitals in terms of its history.

Yes, of course you are right. They call it a senior moment. My bad.

Cool architecture, shame some of those buildings were lost, wonder how many would have remained and what it might have looked like to today
