How am i clueless. This is city vs city and jersey always feels the need to bring up MSA. No other city/state does that, only jersey, which annoys the hell out of me and everyone else

How can any city win, when new jersey keeps bringing in two other states into the fight. Philly and NYC are to of americas great city's who happen to be close to new jersey. Nothing more nothing less. By jerseyites logic new jersey could be better than california

You're right though, except to modify that, better comparison would be San-San (San Diego- San Francisco region) to New Jersey and the metropolitan areas that spill into New Jersey (Philadelphia & New York City).

That would be something I'd love to see compared.

I try to use similar sized land areas, So if I was to compare coastal cali I would compare it with the BosWash corridor.

Jersey and the Bay area seem to be similar in size.

I seriously doubt that you have ever even been to the mountains of North Georgia.

The first two pictures shown of the mountains here could easily be mistaken for several States in the Northeast - so what is your point, really?

I also see no pine trees in either picture, just beautiful hardwood trees - again, just like the mountains of the Northeast.

Your anti-South agenda has grown beyond tiresome.

Characteristically they are as well.

The very urban and dense San Francisco, the moderate density of Oakland, and the lower density of San Jose.

You have a major city in the Bay Area for each kind of lifestyle in actuality. Kind of like a value pack for an area.

New Jersey kind of has the same thing going on I believe.

GA has some very pretty mountains and some great wooded areas

You could go by land area/developed core
NYC/Jersey/Philly vs Bay

or by Population
NYC/Jersey/Philly vs San/San

You're cluless because a city without an MSA is nothing. How could Manhattan operate without all of its commuters from NJ/Westchester/LI etc?
You're such a newbie- In case you havn't noticed, most people from other cities pride their whole MSA because it's what powers a lot of "their city" (Basically, they're not idiots)

NJ isn't bringing in two other states. NJ is just mentioning its ideal location with great access being between two great cities, why is this always a crime? It's being realistic. I'm 10 miles from NYC, but I'm supposed to act like I don't have great access because CD wants to be so technical and difficult?
How is it ok to let people rag on NJ's high cost of living when the reasoning isn't aloud to be mentioned (which is its ideal location)? It's the extreme stupidity and lack of understanding on yours and many others part.

NJ has plenty, it's just that everyone dismisses it because they get over pissy when we try to factor in our great location along with it all.
