As I said in another post I was pleasantly surprised by how green the grass was. It was the greenest I have ever seen. I traveled almost the entire length on NJ and it was pretty rural most of the time.

Most people don't, but the point is that there's still plenty of room here.

North New Jersey (Bergen County)! Not a question in my mind!
for one in NJ there is skiing on snow within 45 min,
the shore is an hour away for i decent beach
NYC is in your backyard for shopping, entertainment and food.
there is a large range of different cultures
you can walk to the store or bus stop
Public transportation is available
NJ has the Safes Drivers according to the DMV
student get higher grades in public schools!

In NC
one there is crime every where
you cant have the sand and snow
and there cities and a sad cry from the GREAT NYC they are more like newark and jersey city

LOL , whats wrong with Newark & Jersey City both cities are better and safer these days. Newark is a police state with all there cameras and crime is down alot. Newark is used as a model across the Country for Crime Reduction and Jersey City is used as a Model for Urban Renewal. Newark is also on the upswing.

although I like NJ better than NC, NC is one of my favorite states and I have to say that I feel that is an exaggeration from what I've heard.
