Anything south of Trenton, imo. I grew up on that border, and it is a definite melding of two cultures. North of there, there's more influence from NYC and south of there, there's more influence from Philly.

Medford and Marlton are in the heart of South Jersey, your friend is just plain dead wrong. Using the NJ Turnpike as a guide anything North of Exit 11 is North Jersey, Central Jersey is from 11-7a, 7 and below is South Jersey.

in my mind, anything on the NJTP from exits 1-5 are south jersey. everything from 9-16 is north jersey. between 5 and 8A i would consider central jersey.

Nope exit 7 is Burlington County which is really the top of South Jersey. Exit 9 (New Brunswick) is central so is exit 11 Perth Amboy. So I'm very firm on my Turnpike analysis and I've lived many years in each part of the state.

Exit 7 is south of Bordentown. It's not Central New Jersey.

Agree that your friend who said Marlton and Medford are not South Jersey is a major loon. Has he or she actually set foot in those towns?

As for the existence of a Central Jersey, I think people who live in counties like Middlesex do NOT think of themselves as either North or South Jersey, but rather as Central Jersey. (My source is family members who have lived in Central Jersey for a long time.) Central Jersey has a different feel from North Jersey; hard to describe, but drive up and down Route 1 or 18 and you might know what I am trying to say. The towns in Central Jersey have experienced a lot of growth and have traffic that can rival North Jersey, but then again, so have parts of South Jersey.

On a side note, I moved from North Jersey (Bergen) to South Jersey (Gloucester) in the late 70s. It was quite a culture shock to me. LOL NO ONE talked about New York City (or, more properly, "the City"). Everything was about Philly. And the accent was very different. Had to lose that "chawklit and cawfee" accent in a hurry. LOL

Take the H2O test:

If people call it "wadda" you're in North Jersey.

If they call it "wudder" you're in South Jersey.

Yup, as Central Jerseyans have chimed in to confirm: Here are the North, Central and South Jersey borders as determined by you (INTERACTIVE) | NJ.com

I agree. I don't get some of the Central Jersey stuff. Take a map of NJ. Draw a line in the dead center , from west to east. Right around the Trenton area. There you have North and South. The Central Jersey stuff is way north....
