LOL.

Similarly, I'm stunned that "Hooper U.," or "Ocean County College" as it's called, didn't make the cut.

What does Princeton bring to the table? Is it the economic engine of central Jersey? In Maryland, for example, Johns Hopkins is a major employer and a world class medical research institution. The jobs are high paying, thus benefitting the state and local jurisdictions. It develops property, building medical parks, and attracts research institutions that benefit from working closely with it.

NJ2MDdude: a typical philistine uttering typical middlebrow commentary. Probably the type to disoblige himself and raucously defend the state from an interlopers nocuous opinion and spew pragmatic comments about why New Jersey belongs to the culturally elite of states, but fails to make the connection that celebrated and puissant institutions such as Princeton make the state the cultural mecca that it is.

(preceding assumption based on this poster's [newark magic] opinion that CD members that reference a/their state and/or city in their username harbor or espouse proud sentiments concerning cited location; hence, NJ2MDdude, NEWARK MAGIC, et. al.)

Nice vocabulary lesson. Now how does Princeton benefit the state of New Jersey and its residents?

This is like bragging about the number of wealthy people that live in NJ.

If you're not one of them, what's it to you?

Even though I am not a fan of Princeton, its effect on Central Jersey and the Princeton corridor, economically speaking, is positive.

There are so many towns down there that have that fake 08540 zip code that let's them write Princeton on their address and attracts all those pharma companies and jobs.
