Newark has A LOT to offer, it is one of the countries oldest cities with so much history. It has a major college, a major airport, it has the biggest shipment port in the country, it has tons of jobs for people of all classes, and it's diverse.

"LOL NEWARK???"(in quote of you)
It's like you look down upon it like it's crap.. get a clue.

But to get back on point.. Jersey City and Montclair, NJ are my favorite.. but when it comes to the most important, it's my home of Newark.

I was just in Newark the other day...not very nice. There are plenty of other desirable places to live in the metro area.

Newark has ugly refineries?? are you serious!?!? Are refineries ever beautiful? those refineries have to run the most populated metro in the country.. so again, you're being ignorant.

and anyway, Newark is not all refineries..

You sound like you have never been in the actual city but on the outskirts of the city on the highways around the airport.
the highways in no way shape or form represent a city.. but you seem very stubborn and naive to believe so.

And don't lie and say you been in the actual city and spent time in it, because you havn't if you're only bringing up refineries in the mix because when your in the city you don;t even notice they're around.

Newark has an unbelievable crime rate. I really don't think anyone would move out of their way to go there. It's more of a last resort if they can't afford other areas. Its crime rates are at an 8 and a 7, compared to 3 which is the national average. Even Paterson, which is also a dangerous and gritty area, has a lower crime rate (6 and 7).

scranton will NEVER be in the nyc msa or csa.

south jersey and philly would get included before scranton

same goes for you. many kids from rural pa want to move to the REAL nyc metro

you sound like one of them

Hey I have a question. Where does the NYC metropolitan area officially stop? I know it goes to rockland county, but does it go past rockland? What county do you go to, to officially be in upstate NY?
