To me, the border of SJ follows the Burlington County line down from Bordentown to Woodland/Bass River. At this point, it turns straight east roughly where the Burlco border is directly west of the northern tip of LBI. The NJ.com map bears this out as well, with people in Stafford and Ocean Twps claiming SJ by a large majority, but Lacey Twp not so much. NY and NNJers may occupy large parts of LBI but they haven't fully annexed it yet.

I don't really don't give a hot damn who follows the Giants or the Eagles, or which news channel they watch. Florida is not a northern state simply because many thousands of northerners have retired there.

Years ago when I lived in Plainfield - Union County - it was considered "North Jersey" but the independent town of South Plainfield - Somerset County - just a mile down the road was considered "Central Jersey."

Go figure.

Hunterdon and Somerset are what makes up "Central Jersey". Its the hills.

Yes, I'm bringing this old thread back.

Having been born in Cape May County, IMHO anything north of Atlantic City is North Jersey. Sometimes, I wish that no one knew that Cape May County exists.

OR

One can look at the line of demarcation as where the locals change the name of the tourists Bennies or Shoobies.

Central starts around Bordentown. Lawrenceville area Wal-Mart sells Giants and Eagles apparel. Folks from Lawrenceville and Princeton consider themselves NY fans. The train gets one to NYC in about an hour. Those areas, therefore, are not 'South' Jersey.

I would say South Jersey starts from Exit 7 on the Turnpike.

South Jersey:

Burlington County
Camden County
Gloucester County
Salem County
Cumberland County
Cape May County
Atlantic County

Anywhere else = not South Jersey.

I'd also throw in most of Ocean County, as much of it is south or directly east of Philadelphia (and even a small portion below the Mason-Dixon line!) Beach Haven is on the same latitude as Westminster, MD. I'd draw the line from Seaside Heights to Toms River to Fort Dix to Bordentown (just past exit 7 heading north on the Turnpike). I'm still surprised that there isn't an expressway between around Exit 4 of the Turnpike and out to around exit 63 of the Parkway in Stafford Township. Sure, development would be restricted due to the Pine Barrens it would go through, but it could provide better access towards visiting it and bridge the gap between the A.C. Expressway and 195 for those heading to the shore. This corridor would solidly be in the northern portion of South Jersey. South Jersey is quite diverse with over half of the shore, rural areas and farm towns near the Delaware Bay, the Philly suburbs, and the Pine Barrens, just like how North Jersey has the urban/suburban/exurban rings distinct from Manhattan and the rural far Northwest with Appalachian foothills and farms and some lakes.
