I think it has to do with serveral reasons. Like it or not, NJ will all ways be in NYC's shadow. That is just the way it is, so I think people around the nation views Jersey with an inferiority complex. Also, NJ is down right ugly when you're driving down the highway, if I was from another state, and I saw Jersey for the first time, I'll be horrified.

That's true, NJ's highways aren't very scenic but than again we wouldn't judge NYC by what we see on the Cross Bronx Expressway

The majority of people going into new york aren't seeing the BQE or the OUterbridge; they see the city. The majority of tourists into NJ see Newark Airport, and the stops along the way on into NY Penn.

Sorry..didn't mean to generalize about NE NJians. I was referring to her ex's - specific type of NE NJian... mafiaso wannabe... gangster wannabe. We don't have many of those out here - cattle rancher wannabes maybe but not gangsters : )))

It's fine Actually Jersey City is in Hudson county anyway, and I only lived in Essex for a short period of time but yeah the gangster wannabee attitude is definitley not what Jersey is about

Or by catching a game at Shea or Yankee stadiums? Duh?

California HWYs, the ones most people use who are NOT mega-billionaires are pretty darn ugly and over-crowded too.

Florida is great...if you like driving behind a white caddy going 45 in a 60 MPH zone? And once you think you've gotten rid of the slow grandpa...another one pops up..two nano-seconds later.

And the attitude is priceless no matter where you live. Choose your accent. It's all the same in the end.

I admitt parts of Essex, Hudson, and Union counties live up to these streotypes. BUT, what do they all have in common? They are close to NYC, one might say too close. With NYC drawing in everyone people neglect the areas around it and they begin to decay, Newark, Jersey City, Patterson, Union City, etc. Also I stopped caring what out-of-staters think of NJ. Let them think I'm a power plant-dwelling-mafia crime boss-that says Joisey for all I care

I have to say that drives me nuts. Some people when they hear I am from NJ, start with the "Joisey" accent. I do NOT have that accent. I do realize some people do,
closer to the NY boarder I think (not sure..lol) But it's like I have to say, "I don't talk like that", it 's NEW JERZ EE, not JOY ZEE. Sorry...lol
