Everyone knows Palm Beach County is nice, but Broward county also has some nice middle class areas. The ones I know best are Davie, Plantation and especially the new areas of Weston. I am not sure about "Miami-Dade" county. Still we are comparing only 3 counties of SE Florida to the largest Metro area in the US ????

I hate to admit it but I cannot figure it out either. The lone pink county is Mercer which is also the Philadelphia metro area. My favorite RL color is blue so I will say that area is the best --- whatever it might be.

Yea i was just thinking why some NJ and NY State counties are the same color as the 5 boroughs. Maybe it has to do with the amount of commuters. I would think the Orange colored counties has the most commuters to NYC I guess.

There really is no comparison....it's like comparing a Big Mac & fries to a gourmet dinner.

New York, of course!!

Possibly, but does orange colored Putnam County really have more commuters than the green colored more urban Essex and Union counties? And what do Essex and Union have in common with the rural Pike and Sussex? And the Hudson valley counties (except Putnam and Westchester) are pink like the 3 Connecticut counties?

But I don't think Putnam county has a lot of commuters to the city. It's a good 2 hour train ride from midtown.
