    It doesn't. We have central jersey in the middle. The counties determine the north, central, and south borders.

Pay rates go up, and up even more once you travel to NYC.
    the raritan bridges separates north from central, but certainly does not divide north from south. north and central share the same tv , sports teams and newspapers with NYC. South Jersey (along the coast at least) is sperated by the mullica river. Everything changes from TV, sports teams and newspapers which are shared with Philly. So, Exit 50 is the border of north/central and true south jersey, again along the coast. There are media lines across the rest of the state as well, but I am not sure where they run, but the mullica river along the coast is part of a media boundary.

    DaMook, agreed. I meant more like a cultural divide. You guys/gals down south don't believe us when we say there are tremendous cultural differences within NJ's borders, but seriously, there are. The guido kooks are for real and we (actual residents of the shore area/south Jersey) laugh at their expense all summer long. The year round residents of NJ's shore towns do not have that accent and do not behave like those kooks on that show. Honest. NJ has some gnarly dirty areas, particularly around Newark Airport, the front door to NJ and the first thing visitors see (bad first impression). Most of NJ however, is nice and fairly clean. I know because I live here and I have traveled enough to know the difference. But please, do try to further convince us of how your Atlantic is different from our Atlantic.

    You ain't lying man. The differences between even neighboring counties can be tremendous.

    to OP, you really want to miss out on the NJers? (pronounced, nijjers)

    In fact a book should be written about it...


    Newark is one of NY's cogs-as Camden is to Philly. In essence, NJ does have a bit of a cultural identity crisis because of these two major cities' news/media/sports outlets and their affects on NJ's perspectives.

    But apparently, if you live in Mercer County, near Trenton, you get the best of both worlds. You get both media outlets from NY and Philly (see below) I guess the boundary runs almost NorthEast to SouthEast slicing the state in half diagonally and definitly culturally. TV has a profound effect.

    Ever hear of the Mummers Parade? If your from North NJ you haven't. But, if you're from south you sure have. Water ice vs italian ice, lunchmeat vs cold cuts, hoagie vs sub, the list goes on. There has to be a book about it somewhere.


    I'd have to say it's totally split. In the Mercer County area you have channels 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10 which are all ABC/NBC/CBS/Fox affiliates out of New York and Philadelphia. Depending on which sports scores you want, tune in accordingly

    Actually Delaware has very clean beaches. http://www.nrdc.org/media/2011/110629.asp

    I believe this is a function of population density and the lack of major cities or rivers out-flowing on Delmarva shores. Having surfed Jersey quite a bit during my college years (1997-2001) I have to admit there were some funky water days and some days where the water was super clear and clean. People often have the misconception that turbidity or visibility define clean water. In drinking water it does, but in ocean water the particles can be caused by wave action and just offshore the water can be very clear. Ask any offshore fisherman. However, a funky tasting water after a rain is probably not a good thing!
