Where is south jersey?

As a spin-off on the "seperate state" thread.....

Where do you think is the dividing line between north and south jersey?

I am guessing most would say I-195?

On the western side, it's when you speak in 295 exit numbers and not turnpike exit numbers.

I grew up in Trenton but spent most of my teenage years in the South Jersey Pine lands camping (illegally) in VW buses with my buddies from Tuckerton and Manahawkin.
