That's what i've been saying. NNJ Refineries are what run a big chunk of the NYC metro and offer thousands to have jobs.

The next refinery needs to be right along the shore in Smithtown.

The thing is that LI is really boring and bland.. that's why no one named any LI towns as the best in the NYC metro.

NYC metro NJ has Jersey City, Hoboken, Montclair, The Shore, The Appalachians, and bland suburbia if your used to the life of LI

NJ has better beaches all in all attracting more people. I mean c'mon, what's really so great about LI that you hate almost everything else in the country?

I just have to laugh at that...like I said earlier, there's a reason why so many celebs/wealthy come to the Hamptons and Fire island. I really don't hear of many celebs going to "the shore." We don't need any "cities" because we can go to "the city" without having to pay a $8 one way toll

I thought this was about cities in the metro area. We've already had a NNJ VS LI thread.

No, but they get on my case about LI for no real reason. Other people have also mentioned that there are very few actual cities in the metro area. It rules out like 80% of the rest of the metro area. That's why some people got to talking about towns.

That's fine, but this is about cities, no?
