It's often far enough. Why drive 20 or 30 minutes to cause trouble when you wreak havoc just a few miles from home.

Has there been any word on what the pricing structure will be? Will each "attraction" have it's own admission price, or is this the type of thing where you can buy a bracelet and go to as many as you want?

So if Paterson is too close and will turn American Dream ghetto, why is Garden State Plaza not a warzone with Paterson only 7.5 miles and a 15 minute drive away? Paterson to Meadowlands is 13.2 miles and 20 minutes away via Route 3 which we all know is a terrible drive and is only showing up as 20 minutes right now because it's 10:30am.

Jersey City is not a giant ghetto anymore. There are a few pockets of poverty and crime, but they're mostly in the south side of the city, not Downtown, JSQ, or the Heights. Bergen/Lafayette to Meadowlands is a 25 minute 16.3 mile drive at 10:30am.

North Bergen, Union City, and West New York are not ghetto. They're immigrant-heavy and working class.

6 flags isn't ghetto, maybe on some days they opened for people that work for non-profits which flooded the park with people who normally don't have the haves to come to the park. The park by no means cheap for ghetto folks to frequent. Each meal is atleast $12 without a drink.

it doesnt matter if a meal is $12 each. its a special trip for them. they will come from the city to be there even if its relatively expensive and a bit of a trip.

you need to stick it a few hours out in Pennsylvania if you want to keep the city folk out. once you get out that far, its just the orthodox jews that drive their mini vans from brooklyn out there (and im sure they take jew buses also).
