"Most people from SNJ are reluctant to reveal where they live to us fellow Pennsylvanians" he or she says. Well, I'm actually FROM Pennsylvania, but I've lived in South Jersey probably half my life by this time. I'm not reluctant to say anything to anyone about where I live, how long I've lived there, where I'm from, etc.

And if you knew how much residents of Cherry Hill and Voorhees earn, you'd be pretty shocked. It's not all about Moorestown (which is bringing in more and more affordable housing and Section 8 by the month).

Regardless, Cherry Hill is largely middle class with a few wealthy pockets mixed in. Voorhees and Haddonfield are good examples.

And here I thought it was all about Haddonfield.

It often is. I'll bet that no one here has been to Timbucktoo.

Voorhees and Cherry Hill are neck-and-neck, socioeconomically.

Yeah, that was a very weird assessment. I hesitated to say anything because I knew it wasn't going to come out well. Some things are best said face to face. They don't do well written.

In my experience, it’s not an uncommon misconception. Perhaps people tend to think Voorhees is wealthier because they view the eastern, more affluent half of the Township separately from the Echelon area?

Ah, Ashland.

Ashland used to be independent, but unincorporated. Then it was split between Voorhees & Cherry Hill.

I didn't think there was any such thing as unincorporated land in New Jersey, at least not in the 20th century. It seemed to me that every square inch of the state lay within the boundaries of some township or other, just as every square inch of Pennsylvania lies within the boundaries of some municipality.

Edited to add: Silly me. Every square inch of land lies within a municipal corporation, but there are communities within these municipalities that are not incorporated municipalities themselves. Pennsylvania analogues are Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Wayne and Haverford* on the Main Line.

*Haverford is something of an oddity, as it refers to both an unincorporated place along the Main Line that straddles the Montgomery/Delaware county line and the Delaware County township that includes that county's portion of the unincorporated place. Other unincorporated places within Haverford Township include Llanerch and Brookline.

When I was in high school I was friends with a girl from Ashland. Her parents paid tuition to Cherry Hill
