I live in Newark in the uk all my life and would not move as it really is a great town and lovely people. No hassle and plenty of open space to enjoy without fear. Big city life is to fast for us folk.

Nah I would not move back there at all. I might have considered a move back to Edison if it had about half the people then it does now. Its so hard to get from point a to point b. Not my idea of fun.

My advice to anyone not thrilled about the state of New Jersey is to take the chance and move if you can. I didnt realize until I left that most of the things that bothered me so much were New Jersey related. It really hits you when you leave there how different people are outside of Jersey.

Im not thrilled about Florida where I currently live. But I am here for family reasons not because I actually want to be here.

So I will be moving at some point but certainly not back to Edison New Jersey.

Why is it that some people flock back to there hometown anyway? Its never the same the second time around. Branch out and explore new areas. Leave your comfort zone once in a while.
I agree. My husband has family down south, and we want to live there once we've saved enough for retirement. People outside of NJ aren't savages.
