Its what we prefer and enjoy. You may think differently and thats OK. NJ is my home state and we have an attachment to it, so to me yes the Northeast cities are different.

Sunbelt states are not for me or my family. We like being near urban centers and like the town feeling that NJ suburbs provide. Everyone has their likes and dislikes. To the people that dislike NJ the best thing you can do is move. I have many of my friends down south that would love to take your jobs.
I'm not even sure why your posting on this thread........the OPs question was why are people leaving New Jersey........not why are they staying......next post try to be a little more relevant to the question.

I don't mean to harp but Delaware is just across Delaware Memorial Bridge ... don't have to go to the South .... just south of New Jersey. ...people are nice. Salaries may be a tad lower than in NJ but expenses are sooooooo much lower. Don't know which job field you are in but recessions come and go but Delaware keeps on ticking. And you are not that far away from your old location in case you feel like keeping in touch with the people you know in NJ. I have seen a lot of jrzians move to Delaware ...and they find that it was a smart move on their part.

Good luck to you wherever end up going .....

i have no problem with you having the preference. i dont have much experience in cities outside of the northeast but id imagine they are all pretty similar no matter where you go.

Let me give you a news flash here.......there are 49 other states ALL with numerous cities with great downtowns, urban centers and cultural events that don't choke the financial life out of their residents through crushing personal, business and corporate taxes and you don't have to look any further south than Delaware.

There are not many cities outside of the Northeast that share the urban character of Northeast cities. Cities like Chicago and San Francisco are the ones that I have been to that are most similar.
