NJ does have cities (Newark, Jersey City, Hoboken, Camden, New Brunswick, Atlantic City, etc.) Why do none of these have their own subforum. I think a lot of traffic gets lost in the statewide sauce. Look at the NY State subforums.

Not enough topics specific to those cities do threads exist for.

I don't see many the people from Atlantic City, Camden & Newark coming onto these forums to talk about their city.

Other than Jersey City, Hoboken and New Brunswick, NJ has ghettoes, not cities. And the population of Hoboken is 55k, New Brunswick at 57k. These are really small towns. Jersey City has a population of 270k so I guess it could be considered a small city...

Because they are all too small or in the shadow of the larger metro area city to warrant their own forum. This is because land-wise, NJ is such a small state, so it’s all relatively uniform culturally.

NY has sub forums for Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse because NY is so large and there is such a distance between them and each other, not to mention NYC, that it warrants them. Completely separate metro areas. Westchester and LI have their own sub forums even though they are in the same metro area, but they are actually separated from each other by NYC which does make for real differences.

Look at similar size states in this forum, geographically speaking. CT, DE, RI all have one forum. NH is slightly bigger and more spread out land wise but also has one. WY is huge by comparison, yet only one forum. Consider NJ lucky that it gets a separate forum for its Philly burbs. Camden is part of that...why would you ever need yet another division? That sub forum is slow moving as it is.

why do you want subforums so post can sit there and get barely any response?

Because 62.3% of the threads on this forum are "I'm looking for a place to live and commute to NYC"

Since half or more of the state could be in play, I think it makes sense to have the forum open to most of the state.

I wouldn't put New Brunswick in the same class as JC and Hoboken.

New Brunswick is far more self-sustained than Hoboken and Jersey City. The latter are “sixth boroughs.”

I wouldn't mind a North Jersey subforum, and Central Jersey + Jersey Shore subforum, and a South Jersey subforum (already exists).
