Pretty random, but I got it from another forum I post in on another site.

I loved/enjoyed it, and hope you guys will, too (my favorite part was the beginning, because most NJ people really aren't how others outside of NJ see them).

Driving Jersey - the movie

Driving Jersey - the movie
I watched the video and it's an interesting and well-done documentary about Seaside Heights. Yet from the title "Driving Jersey" I was expecting to see footage from other parts of New Jersey, not just Seaside Heights. There's so much more to Jersey than this particular shore town... north, central, and south.

Perhaps they plan to film other parts of Jersey, and if so, then the title of the website will be an accurate description.

My name is Zarathustra and here is what my crystal ball tells me about the future of New Jersey:

In the year 2033, NJ will sink into a gigantic swamp pit that began as a pig sty better known today as The Meadowlands.

And Montrose will be washed away in heavy rains after all the timber is cut by the lumber companies.

Thanks for sharing that vid. I'd like to see more of his work on NJ.

Yeah, I saw that. There are a few shorter interviews on youtube listed under Driving Jersey. I thought that it was pretty cool that I knew a woman toward the beginning of the tape. One of the guys on there has a web page that I've read.

Having learned to drive in NJ and had gotten my first license there, it would have been interesting. YES, I'm STILL a Jersey driver.

Most of Penn will be consumed by a flood of rotten, missing teeth from the rednecks that dominate the keystone state This apocalyptic occurrence will not be sent down by God, but by the tooth fairy, who punishes those who do not have the self respect & discipline to brush & floss on a regular basis.


Anyway........................ I'm from North Jersey & do not enjoy the atmosphere of seaside. I go down the Shore for quite & peace. Cape May has always been my favorite (even as a child).
Very beautiful, very serene environment. I will go to Hoboken, NYC, Newark if I want a ruckus nightlife.
I don't need to drive for an hour & a half for that.
Good video never the less. It should change its title, however. This is only a small slice of New Jersey life, not a representative of the whole.
