Your CSA stance can also end anytime.
You are free to think that Northern NJ isn't desirable. The point is that it's the richest and highest-priced part of NJ.

Feel free to prefer Camden or the Poconos or wherever.

The richest and poorest.



Whats desirable is out West, IMO.

Btw, New Jersey locations by per capita income - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hunterdon, Morris and Somerset are still tops.


Do you have any other preferrable methodology?

Exactly. Pockets of wealth dont outweigh the much larger and pervasive pockets of urban mess and poverty.


If he wants to set up his multi-million dollar house next to a sewage plant, by all means, go ahead.

There's plenty of real middle class in my county (Union). There's actually a good thread in the NJ forum that picks out towns per category, from poor (Camden) to rich (Alpine). The most common is in the middle. Read and learn, a rank of our state areas from New Jerseyans ourselves. Two extremes my a**. As I've said before, theres a difference between not liking NJ for whatever reason (cost, where it's located, whatever), fine hate it for all I care, just don't say stuff that's not true.

What NJ Towns are Upper Class - Middle Class etc.

You can't spell yet you feel entitled to voicing your opinion. Lol. Kiddo, some of the most expensive, affluent abreas of the country are in northern NJ, cities like Hoboken, Egdewater, fort lee, alpine and many many others. When you learn to spell come and visit. Lol

To say that Northern NJ contains only "pockets of wealth" betrays an abysmal ignorance of the area's geography and demographics. Bergen, Morris and Somerset counties are among the wealthiest in the country. Middlesex is solidly middle to upper middle class. Union and Essex are more of a mixed bag, but have just as many areas of affluence (if not more) as blight. I would guesstimate that at least 80% of Northern NJ's footprint is middle class and up, and 25 to 40% is upper middle class and up.
