I prefer Central Jersey over North, sorry.

The Northwestern suburbs arent enough to overcome the blackeye of Newark and surrounding areas. I downright hate North Jersey.
Areas surrounding Newark are beautiful, clearly you haven't visited the right areas. That's fine, though, I'm used to people saying this stuff about NJ. Seeing it all as Newark…

Plenty of people get by in NYC despite its price tag, rich, middle class, and poor. There are five boroughs with multiple neighborhoods and a variety of places to choose from. Not everywhere is ridiculously overpriced. Of course it's expensive, this whole area is, but you get what you pay for and that's why people think it's worth it. If one can't afford it, they shouldn't live here, plain and simple.

I've seen a lot of the country, I'm not sure why you assume I haven't. I am not biased at all, I just strongly disagree with the majority of what you've been saying.

The NYC boosters are extremely annoying, and they talk about it as if theyre former tour guides. There is no way anyone experiences everything NYC has to offer on a daily basis, so what good is it to boast about things you dont even do yourself? Its not brain surgery.
I think you're the one with the problem. That's pretty evident.

Everyone? Good one.

I'm calm. Can't say the same for others, though.

I went to Kean University and disagree entirely. The **** areas far outweigh the better ones.

There are much better areas id rather live in Central Jersey.

well, i live not far from newark and except for the south orange reservation, i have to strongly disagree
and i have to agree with chicagoor that a lot of north jersey is a giant sh1thole similar to nyc, except for ultra rich pockets here and there or far out burbs, morris county is nice tho
and u dont get wat u pay for at all anywhere in the nyc metro, jus look at the forums, nj people are always complaining (rightfully) bout high taxes and erything
