It's really a shame.
The state of new jersey set up their gold coast region so that it could leech off of the power of nyc. If thats impressive to some, than so be it. It still remains a stale state with a watered down/pseudo/wannabe nyc culture

Why is that guy talking about Newark and Camden in a thread about Hudson County? Y'know, Watertown sucks, so I'll vote against the Bronx.

Most of nj was already set up before that. the only people who call it that are the developers FROM ny, no Real JC calls it the gold coast and no REAL JC resident prides themself with the monikers of being called the "6th borough". ONly OTHER ny who are looking to make money and people from outside the area who can't afford ny so they move to JC and try to find someway to associate with ny so they can feel special IF JC was such a leech then explain what happened after the 1930s, shouldn't living next to ny have helped us? yet our gentrification has only been taking effect the last years

Or Hoboken AKA- the alternative to SOHO since we have no identity of our own
The Bronx would KILL to market themselves as Brooklyn North if they could. But you can't.
Lets not forget; Not too long ago, Brooklyn was marketing themselves as a "cool" alternative to Manhattan as well.
NYC or not.......................... Hoboken, Downtown/Waterfront Jersey City has parleyed that into significant development (both residential & commercial) while The Bronx just "keeps it straight 100% official NYC".
Good luck with that.
NYC hasn't been 100% official NYC in a long, long time (your man Rudy made sure of that). It's a new day & age & The Bronx desperately clings to the past because what else do you have left? You're getting left behind.
Sorry.

Lol ya right. Natives and transplants alike leech off of new york based culture. Jersey culture is a watered down or,ironically, an exaggerated version of new york culture. Nothing more nothing less. You can fool ppl who dont live in the tristate with that stuff but not ppl that no what time it is

So, is Metro Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco "watered down/pseudo/wannabe" .. No, of course not, because they're in the same state they automatically don't have to deal with people like you, who bicker on and on about complete nonsense.

NYC/Philly's metro hits hard in NJ. There's nothing wannabe about it, NJ's location and size has always been a crime and you never hear the end of it. Why hasn't the economic impact of NYC influence its own state, the way it did NJ?? Without NYC, NYS would still be more populated and much larger geographically than NJ, but not nearly as wealthy.

I love the NYC metro area, especially NJ. Too bad for you, you're limited and arrogant.

Sorry.
The bronx past,present and future will always market itself as the bronx. Brooklyn always marketed its self as BROOKLYN. So much so that the name has recognition worldwide. I cant believe you would say some dumb s..t like that. BK damn near wants to be recognized as its own city.lol

Brooklyn and the bronx have more identity than jersey in their left thumb,especially hudson county aka-"where only 5 minutes from new york,we promise"(knowing very few have that access or lives near reasonable transit lol)

And trust me the bronx is being built up and has nowhere else to go but up. Its been like that for awhile now
