"Many times," you say, but evidently not enough. There are local parks in every neighborhood. Perhaps you wouldn't consider them worth playing in...but that would be you. Something tells me that if the person who started this thread had substituted Bronx for Brooklyn, you'd be saying exactly the same things. You want to promote New Jersey, that's fine. But do it in the New Jersey forum.

The thread starter also says that the answers he got from people on the New Jersey forum were either ambiguous or biased. Now that's interesting...the idea that New Yorkers were going to turn out less biased in their perceptions and preferences.

I'm sorry but your comment is also quite silly.

[quote=bobjohn;4544241]So how to compare Brooklyn to towns in New Jersey? We drove around couple of NJ towns and did not see much. My basic impression was: a very few of overweight people in white t-shirts driving to local pizza place or sit at home or spend weekend in mall./quote]

This was part of the OP. How can you take this seriously???

Nope. Born on L.I., lived in Queens and Manhattan most of my adult life. I also lived in a small NJ suburban town and now I live in Jersey City. The reason I think your comment about all of Brooklyn being better than Jersey or all of NYC being better than Jersey is because it's really an ignorant comment in my opinion. All of those places have great things about them. The reason I think the OP is silly is because of comments like the one I quoted. Come on....how can you compare Brookly and New Jersey??? They are both too diverse.

Well if the OP wants better for his family he will always do better in either NJ, LI, Westchester, Rockland, or anywhere more family friendly then NYC

I mean lets face it, the whole reason why suburbs was created was for city people to go somewhere to raise a family

I start a family, buy a house in the burbs with big yard, garage, and multiple rooms

That is the american dream is it not?
