After the Perth Amboy bridge area to me ( passaic country native) it is central jersey. Those are mostly white beach towns and inland towns with the exception of Asbury Park and a few others. After point pleasant is considered South NJ. Its all a matter of opinion.

But north jersey people always are more diverse and dress wayyy better and
And with more swag than central jersey. Down there they are more tight knit, Mcmansions and typical "Jersey shore" look. Most kids do coke, mollys and weed and drive BMWs courtesy of daddy's credit card. I find it wayyy boring down there. Almost nothing to do.

South jersey is mostly woods and the few cities are related more to Philly than NYC. So the culture mimicks that ... including dread locks and being ghetto.

Of course there are general thoughts. Many people from south Nj always move up north ... yet bring their lousy dress code with them ... google normcore

Tinton Falls is definitely NOT South Jersey.

I propose a very simple definition of South Jersey. It's comprised of the following counties: Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland, Atlantic, and Cape May. Anything else is NOT South Jersey, but you Northerners are free to debate about whether it's Central Jersey or North Jersey. To me, it's all just North Jersey.

The whole "Shore = South Jersey" mantra absolutely does not ring to true people from my neck of the woods, myself included. We distinguish North Jersey beaches from South Jersey ones.

NJ has always been defined by its orientations towards the large cities it borders. If you commute to NYC, or you get NYC media, you're in North, if you you commute to Philly or get the Philly news on TV, you're in South. Mercer is murky since I believe they come under both cities' broadcast spheres and feature commuters to both locales. I live in Ocean County now after living in Camden for several years. Ocean is decidedly not South, as there doesn't seem to be much Philly influence and most of the traffic goes up to New York not west to PA. I'd say what most call Central Jersey is really "lower North Jersey," basically the same media and work patterns as North, but generally flatter, more spread out, and newer construction in many areas. If there is a Central Jersey, where is it's hub? Is it New Brunswick? Is it Trenton? Princeton? I've had students from northern Hunterdon County that consider themselves Central Jersey. I know folks from Toms River that consider themselves Central Jersey.
I like the east/west division too.
In Mercer Co. we don't have much of an identity either way. We get NYC and Philly news, direct transportation (both ways). We drive bimmers and beaters, have Eagles/Giants and Phillies/Mets and Flyers/Rangers bar brawls.

That's only one of the lines. I prefer something like the Barnegat-Pennsauken line, but think it's a little too far South.

Tinton Falls is Central NEW Jersey.


Much of this BS is from the stupid TV show.The Original idea came from a few years of hell in Belmar where the Mayor called the summer renters from "Staten Island" "guido's".Year round residents were up in arms.A couple of the "Guido's came up with the idea but Belmar wouldn't allow the TV shoot so Seaside agreed and now regrets it,nothing but bad press and trouble from that show.


There are no North New Jersey Beaches, that's why the saying is "down the shore"

What's the difference?

The amount of hairspray used.
