I really don't think of the southwest areas as "South Jersey" either but then what are they?
Maybe it should be Northern NJ, Central NJ, The Jersey Shore and then South Jersey.
The dividing line is roughly around Trenton in my view.

Some maps:







According to Northjersey.com though :

Bergen | Passaic | Morris | Essex | Hudson | Sussex

South Jersey is where you go to the beach, North Jersey is where you live and work.

So where you live and work is so boring, you pay 10K a week for a beach house in South Jersey.

It's the shore, not the beach. Come on now, you guys are from Jersey aren't you?

As for the maps posted, I don't consider Ocean County to be South Jersey, although some people do (like GoYanks). Mercer County is definitely not South Jersey, although it sometimes gets lumped in with it because it falls under the influence of Philadelphia (well, Princeton is definitely more NY-centric) and its regional planning is through the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, not the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.

Bergen Co has apt amounts of urban decay?

Yeah. Sometimes the snow-melting coils underneath the driveways leading up to the three-car garages of those $5 million houses in Upper Saddle River go on the fritz.

It was so much simpler when there were only two area codes--North was 201, and South was 609!
