They do that each day. Gets way old.

So I guess almost everyday we're all fleeing the island trying to escape? Yeah, we spend all our time trying to do that . We have everything we need here and really only leave the island when going on vacation. And most of the time I fly places.

At least we have 3 airports on the island

Never forget, which most people do, that both Queens and Brooklyn are located on Long Island so besides three airports you have an actual city to go to. Now, what are the urban and cultural centers of New Jersey???

No need to get defensive, I just stated the fact. Especially since Long Island has been called a flat miserable island just a few posts before this one... Most (5.5M) of the most amazing city on the planet. How miserable compared to "extremely urbanized New Jersey" is this?

Are we looking for more people? I hope not. New Jersey's treasure is its farmland, parks and forests.

Which Long Island has as well, I love Jersey (specifically South Jersey) but I can't take the Long Island bashing, LI is a great place, both are similar.

I'd choose Long Island over North Jersey but I'd probably take South Jersey over Long Island.

We went to a lot of places for hockey all over the state. There are towns on the Palasades that overlook the Hudson that are beautiful. Don't ask me the names of them though. Then you go to the border of NY near Albany and again, it is beautiful. Then there is the western border (north) near the foothills of the Poconos. Very, very nice in the Dover, Lake Hopatcong area.

Certainly, I would prefer LI have lived and raised a family there, but I would certainly not hestiate to move to a LOT of places in NJ, especialy from where I now am.
