I'll take the natural beauty of New England, with the forests and lakes of MA, VT, NH and ME ( all close by) over that of the Mid-Atlantic any day.

I have no real ax to grind against NJ;( I actually go to a few Devil games every year), but it's just not going to win an "attractiveness" contest against MA, and New England.

Here is a NJ thread of a stroll through Trenton, NJ's state capitol with pics and all.
PHOTO TOUR: Trenton, New Jersey
It has it's ugliest and it has it's beauties, but i think it's a great capitol none the less... I don't know why you'd consider the whole city a dump.

And NJ doesn' compare when it comes to natural beauty?






^this is literally in that horrible city known as Paterson





A lot of pics, i know, Flickr does that to ya

Wait, so the Adirondacks across from Lake Champlain, which is hundreds of miles North of Massachusetts are actually apart of the Mid-Atlantic?! Wow, I didn't realize the Mid-Atlantic claimed all that, thanks for the heads up!

Lets start off with the fact that Massachusetts is shaped like a gun. It is unappealing and promotes violence by tricking the eye of the weak. The state in general makes me wary. You did persecute innocent women because you thought they were witches. I'm just saying you guys are loose cannons and that the real Boston Strangler is still out there.... When I think of Western Mass. I think of the New England version of a redneck. It does have the Basketball Hall of Fame but i'll pass, i'd rather not risk my life dodging bullets to honor some great athletes... Boston seems cool other then the massive herds of irish drunks ravaging the streets day and night like that of the 92 LA riot. Im glad its almost out of the way and further north of nj and ny and it sucks the Pilgrims had to land on this state i could only imagine the disappointment. ahahaha na im joking but NJ is better.

I had found some pictures of Mass but they were deleted and I recieved an infraction because they were not my own pictures.

So if anyone has any good pictures of Mass that you have taken yourself please put them up. BPerone put up some great ones of NJ but I think we can match them!

Here are some I took. I don't have a professional camera, so they aren't that awesome, but some of them are cool. The first is of Walden Pond, the second is of Windmill Beach in Yarmouth, the next two are views of Boston, the next three are views from Hull, and the last is a view from Blue Hills. If they work I can upload some more.

I'm from NJ and I voted for Mass. Sorry Jersians!

They are both pretty similar in a lot of ways, but I had to go with MA because there you won't get arrested for buying/selling milk fresh off the farm.
