New York. Out in the Allegheny mountains along the Pennsylvania border. I love them northern hillbillies. X3

In NJ, you have more (world class) amenities in a 65 mile radius than anywhere else in the country.

New York is beautiful too, but NJ generally has the better location. Even if NYC is in NY, I'd say there's more people living in NJ that are closer and have better access to NYC than the non NYCers living in NYS.

Property taxes in both states will eat you alive.

I didn't beat you to it................................. I simply told the truth before you did.
NYC LOVES North Jersey. Business, educated persons & young families seem to agree.

This is true.

NYC has far, far more in common with Jersey than anywhere upstate.
