LOL! Carlo...Imagine living in Mercer Co.

We are Giants/Eagles, Phillies/Yankees, Flyers/Ranger Fans. (Play offs here are dangerous!) We get Philly news, NYC news, we commute to Philly and NYC and we have our favourite eateries in Philly and NYC.

We are JUST north of 195 and at the crossroads of 95 and 295.

All that and home to the State Capitol *Trenton* the good, the bad and the ugly.

Neither NNJ or SNJ wants to claim Mercer Co.

We are the "crotch" of NJ, and suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder

I agree, I have a strong connection to both North and South Jersey and love them both.

the same reason pa has 6(!!!) separate parts. Because no one from south jersey wants to read about stuff in North jersey and visa versa. So its easier to pic out the section you are most interested in..

let me ask a question.. Why would you NOT want a split? You are still allowed to read any section you wish. It would just be easier to quickly pick out the section you want to read about so you don't have to sift thru posts you have no connection with.

Most of Camden and Gloucester County, as well as a good portion of Burlington and even Atlantic County are not very rural. Maybe half of South Jersey is rural.

Well, I guess I am thinking of all the people who come on and and ask where is a good location to move to, vacation in, etc, and wonder if south jersey will be represented if it's asked on a separate NJ forum? I would still read the whole NJ forum, as of right now, things that affect the state as a whole DO affect us, too. I have asked questions about things in south Jersey and had good answers. But if a sub forum was created, I would definitely post on it. I will just have to have 2 tabs open vs. one

Everyone must be really dumb no one even knows where the borders really are! There are North Jersey,Central Jersey and South! I know it would be better to sh*t can the "Central" part thing I can't believe people really care whos North and whos South Jersey! We are not that big of a state and no one can get along here?! WTF!? We aren't the size of Florida or PA.

BTW I saw talking about splitting as a state, not a forum.

Also, people in South Jersey care because we feel that because North Jersey has more power than South Jersey does in Trenton, we get ignored, forgotten, and skipped over by the state government. Plus, people in North Jersey don't realize that there's something in between A.C., Wildwood, Cape May, and Philly.
