Are we talking about the forum or the state?

For the forum, yes I would agree with a split.

For the state, yes I would agree with a split as long as North Jersey keeps Trenton. Make Burlington County the split.

I'd say yes to a separate section for South Jersey or just have it formally adopted by the Philly board. Most of the people in Philly have a working knowledge of South Jersey.

As far as the physical split, I would have voted yes, back in the 80s when it as going onto the ballots, until the state pulled it off.

I believe that we talking about a split on the forum here not a split in the real state

If the forum was split into NNJ and SNJ, where would you put the border?

If your cable package carries MSG...you're North Jersey.

Seriously though, I don't really know. I would think Burlington County and south is "South Jersey". Anything north of Burlington is "North Jersey". It's a little arbitrary and not entirely inclusive, but I would think that most people in Freehold or Princeton associate more with NYC, then Philadelphia. I guess a good dividing line (if there was one) would be I-195.

The tradional physical border is the old East Jersey/West Jersey line, unless you muddy the waters with a Central Jersey buffer zone.

Southern NJ is and has always been influenced by Philadelphia. North Jersey is a satillite of NYC. SJ natives have been rural and the people who are orginially from the area like it that way. We do not need major shopping or strip mall in in every small boro or even every five miles. People move down here from NYC area even more than those from Philly because it is cheaper; not because of its beauty. Their developments and needs quickly obliterate SJ natural beauty along with their cut the tall trees down and pavement mentality. They have stronger needs for services so the taxes go up and lack a do- it -yourself constitution. What America needs is cities of refuge for the middle class and poor exiting super expensive cities, to be built in willing interior states which maybe underdeveloped. In SJ the population feels like it's density is approaching Indias'. Anyway destroying natural resourses has always been the cheapest way of making a living. We need to look at some of the big empty states to help us on this one especially if immigration laws and interest don't change.
