Check out Sussex county and tell me that again. Or Sourland Mountain even, not quite so far North...

I agree. Obviously the best and most practical way to separate a state is by local sports teams. We'll keep Camden, fine, but we get AC too and the North gets Trenton.

I'm actually an advocate for South Jersey being annexed by PA (but not until they get rid of that silly case law and state liquor store mumbo jumbo) and North Jersey going to NY.

On a more serious note, I think there are some big differences between parts of North Jersey and South Jersey, economical/political wise, but maybe they are best discussed in that other thread about Christie.

As a resident of Sussex County I say that Sussex and Warren counties should become a smaller state.

South Jersey

The south and north sections of NJ are so distinctly different- different topography, different accents, rural v. urban, farming v. industry. Most people in SJ follow the Philly sports teams, while North Jersey follows the NY teams. Its surprising there hasn't been a NJ civil war.

Thanks for all of the great pics. The only times I have been to Jersey are when I've gone to Atlantic City so I've never really thought of Jersey as being anything other than Casinos and strip bars.

So, as a native of Illinois, transplanted to NJ, may I ask the fine folks here where the dividing line is? I've never understood it, and when I ask about specific places near where I live now, the third category of Central Jersey is always invoked.

These are a few photos I took last Sunday on our wheeling trip.



This site looks very similiar to one I had to inspect in Chatsworth....does that happen to be where these were taken?

Check the map the area of the state you are talking about is north of cape may and south of sussex county. I would call it middle earth. Thats the problem with people who really don't know the state. We really do have a beautiful state.
