About 1 mile to NJ, 20 to DE, 40 to MD and 60 to NY state at the closest. I guess CT would be next about 80-90 miles or so and VA is probably a little more than 100 as the crow flies

I'm within 60 miles of New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland driving distance. Probably under 50 to each as the crow flies.

I've never actually lived in the interior of a state. I think it'd be a weird feeling having to drive long distance just to get to another state.

Only if something happened that took away my ability to drive.

I live in PA about 300 feet from the Delaware state line. If there wasn't some trees blocking my view I'd be able to see it from my house.
