you guys forgot about STATEN ISLAND haha


Not everybody in "snob places" are snobby, but you tend to find clusters of snobs in:
South - Moorestown/Medford/Haddonfield/parts of Cherry Hill
Central - Marlboro/Manalapan/most of Somerset County
North - Everything around the Short Hills Mall and Bergen County north of 80 (minus Hackensack)

Sometimes the richest are not the snottiest. I am sure there are many snobs there but they tend to keep to themselves. I guess with 26 million dollar homes you don't have to go out much and mix with the common folk.

Agreed. Ive only been to Alpine once, but I know its big money and very new money. This is one of the spots people of color who have big money tend to move nowadays because its more progressive/open minded than traditional wealthier suburbs of NY. Some of the celebs in this town have humble beginnings.

With that said there are new money snobs too, sometimes they can be worse because theyve been rich for a whole five minutes. But then again theyve been on the other side, and brought themselves up. Old money snobs only know money, they didnt really struggle and dont really move up because theyre already there. Way back in the day I went on a college visit to Georgetown and saw some kids with blue, gold button jackets with khakis and loafers and you could just smell it in the air. A bad apple of old money is the worst in my opinion.

Usually it's the parvenus who feel compelled to flaunt their wealth as a signal that they deserve special treatment.

Just "snobby people in New Jersey" is probably funny.

Just say to them, "Wait a minute--you do know that you live in New Jersey, don't you?!"

Very true. I find most times that the snobbiest people are the people that THINK they have money rather than the people that earned theirs and actually do have money.

That is exactly it... those with some money need to prove they are something more than they are. Those with tons of money have nothing to prove they have Money and enjoy it.
