Yeah, it was pretty good. She left her cart, too.

The butcher was one of those Pathmark employees who've been there for a million years.

The icing on the cake was that the people who she ran past all stared at her, then started talking about it, laughing & pointing in the direction that she had gone, to the strangers next to them.

LOL @ these NNJ/SNJ threads........................ It's always an exercise in South Jersey venting their "Hey, what about us?" feelings.
South Jersey always seems to have a problem with North Jersey. On the other hand, North Jersey simply does not care one way or the other.
Quite telling.

What? That might be one of the dumbest things I've read.
North Jersey is like New England????? How?
South Jersey is like the SE states???
Uh...South Jersey is metro Philly which is a NORTHEAST city.

You sound like you have never been to New England or the south.

I've lived in both North Jersey (Ridgewood) and South Jersey (Cherry Hill). I far prefer South Jersey because it is much less congested than North Jersey. I agree in general that people are more civil in South Jersey; however, Eagles fans are far more obnoxious than Giants fans.

Civil is right. Much more down to earth and laid back compared to the preppiness of North Jersey.

I don't know Ridgewood particularly, but I am not really a fan of Bergen County. It's very cramped and congested, and "preppy", and much of the developing looks kinda gaudy and dull.

The Philly burbs in South Jersey is my favorite part of NJ. Second choice would be where I live now, which is very convenient in terms of location with instant access to all the major highways and I love New Brunswick, but am here because I work here. If I could get a job in the Philly region I'd move down there in a second. That said, I don't think Cherry Hill would be on my list of places to live. I'd look in some of the neighboring towns like Evesham, Maple Shade, Cinnaminson or Delran among others. My mother grew up in CH in the 1970s and my grandparents still live there, exactly 40 years now. CH is a nice town and has some beautiful neighborhoods, but seems to be a bit too expensive and overpriced IMO, and we know what other element comes with that.

New England???????

SE? well, I guess it would depend on which one. NC is most like South Jersey, in my opinion. South Jersey, like Philadelphia is MidAtlantic. If you go anywhere from Philly to Richmond you can see the similarities.

Regardless, North Jersey & South Jersey are more dissimilar than alike.

Anyone who thinks that North Jeresy is remotely like New England has never been to New England. You don't get "New England" until you leave the influence of NYC and start to get the Boston influence. IMO it's a stretch to still consider Connecticut part of New England.

North Jersey is an extenstion of NYC, just as South Jersey is an extension of Philadelphia and both of these areas pattern after their metro market more than they realize. I think both areas have a lot to offer, but it depends on what you are looking for. I do think that North Jersey is faster paced and overdeveloped and while that is part of it's appeal, that's also a drawback. South Jersey is more laid back and more rural in comparison and that has it's drawbacks, but is also an advantage.

I've lived in both, albeit briefly in North Jersey and while I liked the excitement of North Jersey, I did miss the more casual and laid back atmosphere of South Jersey. It really comes down to personal preference and I just happen to prefer South Jersey to North Jersey. I also happen to prefer Philadelphia to NYC. I imagine it's that way for most people.

I don't think anyone in South Jersey envies North Jersey. There is the political aspect of wanting our fair share of the pie, but I don't hear people around here lamenting how they wish South Jersey was more like North Jersey and the reverse is also true. The only anecdotal evidence of "which is better" would have to be transplant people. I've met quite a few people who moved from North Jersey to South Jersey to raise their families and cash in on the value that South Jersey offers. These same people are also sucking up hour and a half commutes for work, so their moves were for personal reasons. Conversely, I've heard of very few people from South Jersey moving to North Jersey unless the move was job related.

They are different sides of the same coin.
