Not exactly the two states I would ever thought of seeing together as twins. But maybe you would care to elaborate more to convince us? I'd be interested to see what you have to say.

I donít know if I would go as far to say that the two states are ultimately identical. There are some similarities with New Orleans and New York like the "Yat Dialect" but how could you even compare the two.

Louisiana in general has allot of French/Spanish architecture and history.
New Jersey was under control by the Swedes and Dutch.

The cuisine and culture are completely different.... I have never heard/seen a Creole in New Jersey.

If I were to compare Louisiana to another state I would say South Carolina has a whole lot more in common.

Not to mention there are NO gators in New Jersey. Even if there were, there would be no comparison to 1 million like Louisiana.

New York City is not in New Jersey. It's in New York.

Sorry to sound like a jerk, but too many people who live outside of the tri-state area think "New Jersey" and they associate it with Newark, the turnpike, and for some reason, NYC. It's rather frustrating, as this state is more than a sixth borough of New York City.
