Exactly, spend a few hours in Lancaster or Harrisburg and tell me it's anything like Alabama.

how can we make this happen?

If you work in Center City Philly & want to live in the suburbs, South Jersey suburbs are the closest, & I don't mean Atlantic City.

Probably but the mainline is almost as close and depends on what Jersey burbs, Marlton is further than Ardmore for example

From Lindenwold at the end of the line to 8th & Market is 20 minutes, shorter if you're taking the express train. My dad's done it every day for the past 30 years. It's annoying that there are two different governments on either side of the river (both in the cases of Philly and NYC). I feel like there would be many more connections (bridges, tunnels, etc.) if they were all part of the same state.

I'd say New York is more tied to New Jersey than Philly is. Philly undoubtedly has close ties with New Jersey. There are many diehard Phillies fans from Jersey that show up at the games. But Philly is more tied to its Pennsylvanian suburbs than its NJ suburbs simply because the mainline suburbs, Conshohocken and King of Prussia are located there.
