If cypress trees were native to Long Island, she would be singing their praises all day long. Since they are native to Georgia & Florida, they automatically fall into the "bad" category.

It's too bad you only visited the ghettos in NJ - You should have checked out Jersey City, Hoboken, New Brunswick, Red Bank, Atlantic City, or any of the nicer cities in NJ for which there are no equals in GA. GA has, really, two cities - Atlanta, one of the biggest in the nation, and Savannah, known for its unique charm and beauty. That's it. Macon, and the other cities are ghettoes and crime-riidden, making GA's crime much worse than NJ's. Not to mention the meth problem in GA that is far bigger than any drug problem in NJ. I think more poverty in GA leads to more meth-heads than in NJ or other states.

It's really very simple.

Credibility of those unwilling to concede anything positive about GA = 0

Credibility of those unwilling to concede anything positive about NJ = 0

I've seen breathtaking sights in both states, and I've seem squalor in both. All the rest is a matter of personal taste.

Anyone that would make the ridiculous claim that Atlantic City is one of the nicer cities in New Jersey has blinders on. Anyone that would make the ridiculous claim that the only nice cities in Georgia are Atlanta & Savannah is clueless. Anyone that would make the ridiculous claim that ALL other Georgia cities are ghetto and crime-ridden has an obvious agenda. But we already knew that.

Full disclosure:

That's from the top of the new Ritz-Carlton Residences or, as I call it, the "building-that-mocks-me-each-day-as-I-walk-out-my-building-with-it's-desirability". Here's to the housing crisis continuing on for another year or more so I can afford a unit in that building.

In early June, that delegation passed a mostly symbolic resolution urging state leaders to pass a transit policy.
In June 2008, under intense pressure from businesses and Atlanta residents along with other politicians, Governor Sonny Perdue backed the Lovejoy line and said he wants it to be pursued aggressively.

But i'm saying it takes twice as long to get anything done in the Mass Transit / Rail dept. Meanwhile your state has no problem building highways every year , new interstates like 14.

I'd be willing to bet you have never been to Trenton. Nor is there really a reason to go there, frankly. Aside from the state government, there is honestly not much to it. It only has 80,000 residents, and crime is not bad at all for a city. It's nowhere near the Bronx's level of crime.

I'm curious...how come I never see you post on the NYC board? You just troll the NJ threads. It's weird, like openheads says.
Uhhh im not taking sides here but did you just say Trenton is no where near the Bronx in terms of crime?? Trenton is constantly in the top 10 and 20 in terms of most crime ridden cities. Im not saying your wrong but do you have some type of proof or are you just saying that because your upset at that poster. I mean the Bronx is way bigger and has a ton of crime issues but come on.
