It sounds like you're the one with a boring life.
I guess ignorant comments like this do not equal bashing:

Did you read this sentence before you posted it? You said Nassau county "of course it is suburban"...then you say..."it's not an endless suburbia". WTH?

It's simple only to someone from New Jersey. To New Yorkers "the boros" are an integral part of New York City, part of its heritage, culture and identity. There would be no New York as we know it without Brooklyn or the Bronx. Anybody FROM New York knows that the Mets, Yankees, US Open or Coney Island are all staples of NYC culture and urban experience. Park Slope and Williamsburg in Brooklyn are some of the most happening and culturally active neighborhoods in all of New York City. Hudson county? Who cares about it in New York? It's not and never been a part of the city or its culture.

Of course, to someone from New Jersey "wealthy neighborhoods" is the most important aspects of the urban experience. If so, I can prove to you that Williamsburg in Brooklyn is more desirable, hence expensive, than any "wealthy neighborhood" in Hudson county

Stay in the 'burbs kid. You'd get lost in the city you don't understand

When folks say they "go to the city" and they are out of town/out of state they mean the entire city of New York.


Entire Hudson County? ha ha Have you ever been to Secaucus, East Newark, Harrison, Kearny or Bayonne??? ha ha. You think they have anything in common with the city of new York or Manhattan?
Wrong. The city is and perhaps will always be Manhattan. You claim NY, so how do you know what out-of-towners think? That's our category remember? You're slippin

1) New York City in general is one of the most expensive places on the planet.
2) Neighborhoods like Park Slope and Williamsburg in Brooklyn or Forrest Hills in Queens, to list just a few, are more expensive per square foot than anything in New Jersey.
3) Bergen County includes such urban gems as Hackensack, Garfield or Lodi. Do you think anybody would consider them a step up unless they come from a real ghetto?
Wrong. Ever heard of Alpine, NJ?

Hudson County is the densest county in the densest state in the country. Hudson county is more urban than you'll ever understand.

JC rivals large portions of the outer-boroughs as far as neighborhoods are concerned.

On the other hand The Bronx is a world wide famous boro of New York, birth place of world wide popular rap music and home of the New York Yankees. It is always been a boro with some beautiful and superexpensive neighborhoods.
The **** up KONY. Even w/ your spawns you just don't have many allies.

That's not necessarily "ignorant" bashing. The Bronx is the most poverty stricken borough in the city- True or False?
The Bronx is arguably the most significant borough (outside of Manhattan) as far a cultural exports go- Who's denying that?

What you've been doing has been ignorant, spiteful, and close minded.
I've yet bashed any part of NYC in dealing with your crap- You can't even admit Hudson County is at all "urban" - Let's say you're right, it's suburban, but is it not urban? Is it not economically and physically connected to the city more so than any other county outside of NYC?

No one's denying that it's NJ's- It will always be NJ, and there will never be a 6th borough. The "unofficial 6th boro" topic is just an observation that some NYers take way too seriously- And usually have shtty grammar when showing their "disappointment"

Oooohh okay. So your posts I quoted below don't count? (and if you look back early into the thread, you drew first blood w/ the bashing...check it out)

Second, Queens as a county is more urban thank Hudson county. Unless, of course you measure urbanity by population density

PS. What's up with New Jersey? All of a sudden you seek urbanity? Part of this this utterly suburban state first wants to be called NYC's sixth boro and in another thread compare itself to the West Coast urban gem like San Francisco Did you guys inhale too much fumes on the turnpike or something?

Based on size alone JC/Hoboken significance to NYC is marginal and NY state own Nassau county has already much stronger ties with the city than any other county in the region. Instead of dreaming to be a part of NYC cleanup your own Newark, Elizabeth and Irvington and be proud of your urban glory.

So say what you say, but don't be mad when we do the same. Man up will ya

This is just so unnecessary, I've never seen someone go to such great lengths for something so insignificant and online at that.

It simply means that in Nassau County there is actually something besides the endless suburbia. There are beautiful beaches and parks. Any in Hudson county?

Of course. It is probably more urban than New York City itself. Or at least this is what you believe. You are from New Jersey. It shows

PS. Do you like South Park? Apparently it's creators don't like New Jersey and they are not even from new York It's a Jersey Thing (Season 14, Episode 9) - Full Episode Player - South Park Studios

Maybe you should tell them about the great Bergen and Hudson counties so they stop making fun off new Jersey, too?

Early on in the thread, jobber says this: The Sixth Boro titles has always been in posession of Palm Beach County, Florida. Palm Beach, Boca Raton and surrounding municipalities are full of ex-New Yorkers.that Palms Springs

And that's cool...BUT...there's a problem:

When you bring up the land mass known as NJ, he says one has nothing to do w/ the other.

BUT WAIT! Doesn't that contradict you ask? Sure does, b/c while Palm Springs may be a respectable contender outside the NE tri-state, it has PLENTY of 'ex-New-Yorkers'. BUT WAIT! Didn't jobber say that was the reason he chose Palm Springs as a 6th borough? Sure was.

BUT WHY?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The problem here is that jobber/Kony think that the term '6th boro' is meant literally. And it is not. Why? Because any fool knows that NYC consists of 5 boroughs.

So then why all the hoopla?

Because on c/d, some folks can't wrap their head around other ideas or perspectives not their own, and when it threatens their version of things they know no other outlet except to speak out. This often leads to contradictories, falsehoods, and downright incorrect information.
