again.. those are the outskirts of the city. It's not like those factories are in people's back yards.
Those factories gave thousands jobs. It also runs our in home energy in this metro area. So besides the look of them, they offer a lot more then flat bland LI.

Watch, sooner or later NJ will run out of room or say no to NY and LI will be the hot spot for refineries and dumps.. I mean ugh, it already has a lack of land diversity, now dumps, LI will be a disaster.

Actually, I believe most (if not all) of the pictures Rachael posted are of facilities in Linden, not Newark.

Edit: And the dumps which receive NYC trash are mostly in PA, VA, and the Carolinas these days.

I was about to say the same thing.. Linden, Elizabeth, etc.. but i wasn't sure.

And about NY's trash.. it still goes into Elizabeth/Newark/Linden dumps, it does spread though.. Don't know why. It doesn't seem fair when they have a big ol' flat island to dump it on right next door in there own state.

refineries are necessary for the united states to function

for someone to make fun of northern new jersey for having refineries is the equivalent of them making fun of grocery stores for selling food

it is not directed towards rachael84. that comment is directed towards every person that makes fun of nj for having them

They're necessary, but it doesn't mean it's nice to live by them.

Her precious LI is not receiving enough attention in this thread, so it's time to act out.

Jersey City & Hoboken are still still the best cities in the NY metro (outside of NYC).
