I know crack devastated a good part of the New York metropolitan area(5 boroughs, Newark and other north east jersey cities)but how bad would you say they were? What about other parts of jersey during that time? Is there a difference between the hoods in north east jersey and the hoods in the 5 boroughs? Because I've been to both areas and dealt with people from both north east NJ hoods and NYC hoods and have never really seen any difference bewteen them. I have always seen Hudson county NJ, the 5 boroughs and just that general area as one in the same. I always hear jersey people and NYC people say they're so much different from one another but they are the only ones who seem to think that hahaha. I'm from jersey and I'm not biased so I can tell you that the people in the Hudson county area of NJ and the 5 boroughs are just one in the same. Only amongst Italian Americans and African Americans though. I'm Italian American.
