    New Jersey is known for many things, mostly good....What do you like most about Jersey?



    For me its the fact that if you walk or drive 5 min in any direction you find a pizza place.....

    convienence: NYC, Philly, or the shore within 2 hours of each other. Atantic City, ALL NIGHT DINERS, some of the best restaurants around, local to all sporting events and venues.
    I love the history that took place here in shaping the country.

    I love it here.

    I agree the fact that you have access to pretty much everything you would want to have access to is def. a big plus


    You wanna throw some dice you go to AC

    You wanna hang at the beach, take the drive

    Plus NYC, is basically a 40 min drive away...its awesome



    Plus New Jersey people are the finest brew on EART

    The Famous Five Points Diner on Rt47 in Wash Twp is officially having its "Diner License" revoked. It is no longer open 24 hours. I heard rumors of it being closed and the last time me and my friends stopped by, sure enough, it was.

    I have an appreciation for New Jersey like none other. Live in Colorado for awhile and you get the fricken shakes.

    White Castle. 'Nuff said.

    Being close to Philly and NYC is cool. I can't go five miles without seeing a Wawa. I like how we say "water" weird, but that may just be a South Jersey thing. And I like the fact that the closest shopping establishment to me is Cow Town, a giant flee market and rodio.

    I actually have to say the best thing about being in NJ is being so close to NYC. I am literally 5 minutes away from Staten Island. But when I go home from here, if leave here too late and end up on 287 around 5pm, I get caught in traffic galore. Disadvantage to living so close to the Outerbridge. [face_plain]

    Direct quote from Jim norton's first cd. (he was born and raised in N. Brunswick.)

    "You don't realize the 24hr. convience we have at 2 in the morning you can get truck tires a prostitute and a bag or heroine all from the same puerto rican"

    Oooh. We must be neighbors. I too am that close to S.I.

    The best of NJ is now we have car insurance companies now willing to give us policies. [face_dancing] I had lost mine twice when companies moved out.

    And we are probably the state with the most malls. I can access five large malls by driving 20 minutes in any directions.

    I say one of the best things about Jersey is all my friends in the NJO. :)

    Oh yeah and when I go to Jersey they bring me to White Castle which is does not exist in Massachusetts..execpt the freezer section at the supermarket.

    Boy am I the only one who thinks this state sucks? Everything's too damn expensive and there's too many idiots living here. I hate Jersey.

    That being said, I'll probably never leave having lived here so long.

    I like that newegg.com has a warehouse in New Jersey, so that even UPS 3-day ground gets here overnight. I ordered a stick of memory from them yesterday afternoon and it arrived here this morning. I'm going to have to order from them more often. :D

    Same as Gary pretty much...diners, convenience, spending the summers at the shore growing up, the loyalty Jerseyans have for each other (it's true, look for it sometime) and of course...

    the GIANTS!!!

    The only good thing about the Devils to me is Jamie Langenbrunner. And that's all you'll get outta me on that topic.

    I've always liked the fact that we, as Jerseyites, get all the advantages of New York and Philidelphia, due to how close we are, and similar in some of our major cities, and yet we don't have to associiate outselves with New Yorkers and Philideplians :p


    Also, I think it's pretty cool that we TECHINICALLY should own the Statue of Liberty. (IT'S IN THE JERSEY HARBOR DAMN IT!)

    The excellent pizza that can be found everywhere is definitely one of the best parts of New Jersey.

    I'm in Atlanta, GA now for college and all the pizza around here is awful :-(

    I miss Jersey...although I'll be back for a little while to visit family and such.
