This discussion is too confusing for me, so I think we should simplify it.

Maybe something like hair dos????

North Jersey-

I think I agree with the way Wikipedia has it...being from South Jersey, I used to say that only areas covered by the Courier-Post (the self-proclaimed "South Jersey Newspaper") are South Jersey. For example, in HS sports, the Trenton and Shore Conference areas were not covered, even though they are in some South Jersey NJSIAA classifications, which would create some confusion.

I never used to believe in Central Jersey, until I met my girlfriend who is from Monmouth County, which I'll give it to her actually is Central Jersey. Again using Sports, I used to always divide North and South Jersey by pro team affiliations. North Jersey = NY teams, South Jersey = Philly teams. Basically going along with that it should go by what TV stations you get. North Jersey = NY stations, South Jersey = Philly stations. Are there places that get both?

Yes. My aunts in Mercer County get both Philly and NY stations. Middlesex is too far north, with only NY stations, except CN8 Philadelphia. Even in Jersey City I get CN8 Philadelphia. It's good because I can watch Villanova and Delaware sports

Love the maps! Too funny.

I'm from Beachwood, and went through the Toms River schools growing up, and I think TR is Central Jersey.

However (and my friends from Forked River might not agree with me here, but they're Pineys, so whatever! ) when I drive a few minutes down 9 into Forked River, Barnegat, Mahahawkin, the "feel" is immediately South Jersey. I've always felt that the TR area was the southern boundary of Central Jersey.

Yes. I believe areas of Mercer County get both and I know areas of Monmouth County (and probably northern Ocean) get both, as well.
