Route 195. That is what most people seem to consider the line.

I would guess NJ residents who root for the Eagles and Phillies are South Jersey folks.

Maybe at one point, Toms River was rightfully South Jersey, but I feel like that has changed. It's definitely more mixed, and honestly, probably skews more North than South. Whereas, Florence/Bordentown on the west side still skew more South than North. Pretty much, it's about proximity to either NYC or Philly. So, it's not just a matter of how far north or south but also how far east or west.

But that's just me.
All of South Jersey was part of West Jersey. Not all of West Jersey is South Jersey.

New Egypt is the geographic(al) center, so that's not far off.

I'm on a phone right now & can't post links. Google West Jersey. There's a site concerning East Jersey & West Jersey. It has a page concerning South Jersey.

I was thinking of the Barnegat - Pennsauken Line.

I've always been a fan of the old East west line. It even divides municipalities in Mercer, which is always tricky to define. It also aligns with modern media markets/sports fandom well. The rise of Central Jersey does complicate things a bit. I think the 7 lower counties are pretty definitively SJ. North and Central are a bit less cohesive.

Getting back to the OP: there is no possible definition of South Jersey that would exclude Marlton and Medford, both clearly in the Philly influence zone (natives have South Jersey accents in my experience.)
