Oh and, look up California city, California.

It's an interesting place. Tons of roads with no buildings.

How can Camden qualify when it's right across the river from Philadelphia?

Exactly what do you mean by that? Philly made it, Camden did not.

"As of 2009, the unemployment rate in Camden was 19.2%, compared to the 10% overall unemployment rate for Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties and a rate of 8.4% in Philadelphia and the four surrounding counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania.[70]"

"Although once a thriving center for manufacturing and industry, Camden is perhaps best known for its struggles with urban dysfunction." - Camden, New Jersey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some people also call Camden the "Newark of South Jersey".

Its probably a lot deeper than that. He wants to appear all knowing of everything while using google. To appear he has knowledge or experience when he does not. Likes to impress people I suppose in the real world and even on the interent..some type of self gratification or some type of low self esteem is why he talks down to others maybe? Ends up into this large string of never ending lies.

He does not own anything in Mo especially a home but acts like he does so he can quote "talk about Mo". If you notice his history he has been on here about every hour on every day to multiple hours everyday.

Must be a SouthNJ thing, never heard that before. One thing though: Newark is doing better than Camden in every capacity one can think of.

See, I'd respectfully disagree on this one. Birmingham is actually a city that, thirty years ago, managed to slough its one-industry label and has grown dramatically as a metro area in terms of population and per capita income.

And, by the way, how do you define 'made it'? Does that mean depopulation and general economic decline?

Every city in the states of New Jersey and Connecticut are cities that did not make it, at least not relative to the competition in the Northeast Corridor. It is too tough to compete with New York City, so one has to go all the way to Philadelphia before the gravitational pull weakens enough and you have a city that can stand and grow on its own, and heading north you need to go all the way to Boston.

San Jose! It never became the capital of Silicon Valley. SF and Palo Alto are!
