There is more going on in north Jersey IMO, but I can't take the traffic up there. I am frightened when I have to drive up there, lol. I also think it's more peaceful down here, friendlier, and I like all the farmland and the over the river and through the woods routes I can take to get just about anywhere. Aside from that, I'd rather watch the Eagles on Sunday than the Giants!

It 100% depends on what you are looking for. For me, I like the tranquility of South Jersey that allows quick and easy access to the beach and a major city. North Jersey has a fast-paced lifestyle that seems to me to be more focused around "the city". It has more to do than South Jersey, but has an entirely different feel to it. Plus, there's no Wawa's in North Jersey =P

South Jersey.

There is a civility to South Jersey. People speak in stores, on the street, wherever.

Supermarkets are usually prime places for conversations with strangers. About a year before I moved, I was looking at some meat in Pathmark. Another woman was looking at it, about a foot away from me. I commented to her that the meat looked nice. She dropped the meat that she was looking at & ran off down the aisle screaming. Everybody looked at her. I looked up & one of the butchers was standing there, grinning from ear to ear. He said, "Must be one of those new people.", & went off laughing.

LOL that's like the Family Guy episode when Brian is in class and is sitting next to a girl and has a question about something so he just turns to her and she freaks out and pulls out the pepper spray and sprays him, screaming bloody murder as though he "harassed" her.

If this was in the main NJ forum, where it belongs, I could see this turning into a flame war.

To me, North Jersey, for the most part has a New England Feel to me. South Jersey feels a lot more like the Southeastern states. Central Jersey is somewhere in between.

I'm a Northerner myself, and while it is crowded, I greatly prefer it to South Jersey.
