I don't think there's an answer to your question. What PARTS of NY and NJ are you considering. There are huge variations in each state.

There are places in each that make me VERY afraid. One as bad as the other.

NY used to be worse than jersey, but now it is being gentrified. So right now I would say NJ.

We have West NY, Weehawken, Union City, North Bergen, Newark, Elizabeth, Passaic, Paterson, Dover, Camden, AC, Pleasantville, Tenafly, Alpine etc.

NJ to NY state. They pretty much have the same amount of ghettos. NY has parts of NYC, the housing projects and surrounding areas of Yonkers, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle. Cities that are complete dumps like Newburgh, Rochester, and Buffalo. NJ has the same. Complete dump cities like East Orange, Newark, Irvington, Camden, Trenton, ect.

Excuse me! NO, not all of Buffalo and Rochester are complete dumps, Each city has its good parts and bad parts. Typical downstate NY response.... totally put down all of upstate NY cities. ITS TIME FOR A DIVORCE.....Upstate and Downstate seriously need to consider a separation ("Its just not working out") and become two states. Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and the rest of upstate above the Hudson River Valley will take our chances on our own.

I think Hustla's generalization of all of upstate is incorrect but there are some bad areas you must admit. And seriously NYC is the economic engine of the state so you guys "upstate" would go bankrupt if given sovereignty. I know plenty of people from the Roc and Buffalo here in Clt who say upstate NY is nothing but a bunch of dying cities in cold weather.

We may go bankrupt, but at least we will no longer be dependent on downstate and we will be able to determine our own destiny with our own resources (as little as they may be). Don't get me wrong, I like NYC (Buffalo's Mayor is orginally from Queens), but I'm tired of the superiority complex that many people from New York city exhibit toward upstate ny. Yes I admit that there are some bad areas in upstate NY cities, but we also have A LOT of good areas as well,and I might add, there are bad areas NYC as well. I suggest anyone who thinks Buffalo is a dump take a look at Buffalorising.com to learn about the positive economic developments taking place in the Buffalo Niagara area.
