really it's divided by "gateway region" "southern shore" "greater atlantic city" "delaware river region" "highlands". the philly burbs are all classified as The Delaware Valley meaning philly media covers this area. I don't think this south/north central concept is healthy

There are 2 central jerseys. The ones north jersey considers south and the one south jersey considers north.

LMAO at the Confederate flags! But in all honesty, some people have some pretty warped views of the whole north, central, south thing. If you're going to divide it up, to me, that means you have to do it geographically. I'm sorry but northern Somerset, Hunterdon, and Middlesex counties are NOT Central Jersey. Just look at the map. If you inlcude those as apart of Central NJ, what would be "South Jersey" is almost twice the size of "North Jersey". Look at the map on the 1st page, and that's exactly what happens. Also, all of Monmouth county should be Central Jersey. In no way is Monmouth South Jersey.

Most of Ocean county is SJ imo, no matter how many New Yorkers invade those beaches. You can have everything from Seaside on up.

That map has the right idea, I would move the North Jersey line up to around Florence though

If that first map can catagorize Trenton into South jersey instead of central, then perthamboy and bridgewater would have to be central - and to reflect that extreme in the south we need a south central.

Practically speaking, south jersey is huge and south central is quite similar to north central. Central can mean bordentown or seaside so I think the only clarification is to forget about north and south jersey because those extremes are obvious, and instead refer to north central or south central.

Nope. Sorry to say, you're wrong. Monmouth county is central NJ. It's all about where you live though. I'm in Monmouth and have always been referred to as central when I'm here. When I'm south, I'm referred to as north. When I'm north, I'm referred to as central and rarely south.

Exactly .Your map is correct. The first person who posted was not.

Monmouth County has always been CENTRAL NJ. I've never heard of it being spoken of differently.

There's something wrong with that, though. If we were to geographically divide it up, South Jersey shouldn't be any bigger than North Jersey. That's what I'm saying.
