Now you're learning. Good job.

No it wouldn't make sense, if staten osland wants to join NJ sure we would welcome them but JC will never be ny. JC is JC suburb to nothing, at all. JC is not even suburban, theyre are plenty of cities that have more of a suburban feel but are not considered suburban. JC NEVER WAS NOR WILL EVER BE A PART OF ny.....PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!

So I think it would be absolutely hilarious if someone put a referendum on the ballot in Jersey City to secede from that state and become our sixth borough.
we have been trying to take from ny, um..... you want to tell that to all the Nets fans (one example)? ny has taken way more from NJ than NJ has from ny.

No. New Jersey is ill-equipped to prosecute the mobsters that live in the SI mansions.

Dear NYC, the people that want JC to become another boro are the yuppie transplants that took over Downtown JC, Take it from someone FROM JC, we have zero interest in becoming a boro and couldnt care less what NYC thinks of JC. While we're at it please take your yuppies back and tell them just because they live near a path station doesnt make them cool. Jersey City associates itself more with Newark in a real JC persons mind anyway.

Don't worry--we know that. Nobody else would've started a thread like this. (I'm curious, though, to know if the yuppies--and their equally pretentious descendants, the hipsters--have made up cutesy names for neighborhoods in Jersey City and Hoboken, as they have done in the various neighborhoods around NYC they've come to infest. No real, native-born Brooklynite, for example, would actually call the Fulton Ferry District by the silly yuppie name, DUMBO).

and taxes. When I lived in NJ and worked in Manhattan, I had to pay NYC taxes not NJ taxes.

Anyway, I'm not even going to touch the culture debate, but it makes no sense geographically for Jersey City to become part of NYC. I don't know jack about SI. And I'll admit, I guess I'm a Yuppie technically Young Urban professional, and a transplant *gasp*, and when I lived in Hoboken it annoyed me to have to make the distinction of living in NJ not NYC to people in other parts of the country when 1) Nobody outside of the area knows what Hoboken is, and 2) I worked, shopped, ate, went out etc in NYC. I did not live in a house two feet away from another house and drive a BMW and have a mini yard. I used public transit, shopped at bodegas, and walked up 4 flights of stairs. But yea, this debate is stupid.

Thankfully Jersey City is still mostly in tact, aside from the majority of Downtown JC which they have taken over. Hoboken by FAAAR got the worst of it though. All the Frat J*** offs call Hoboken "the Boken" ,as far as downtown JC im pretty sure no names have been created yet.... since like I said its not nearly that bad in terms of Yuppie hipster b.s.
