oh man. You have no idea. On the contrary, New Jersey is a wonderfully fantastic state, filled with contradictions and has much to offer. It's population is the most dense and it features some of the Richest and Poorest areas in the country. It has some of the most dense urban sprawl and extreme stretches of woodland. Those who've never left the turnpike may not know why it is called The Garden State, but those of us who have, and esp those like me who grew up there, certainly know, and after spending some time in various parts of the midwest, I wouldn't trade the hills and valleys and dense forest of New Jersey for endless cornfields. It is also amongst the most socially/culturally/racially diverse states, has a fantastic shoreline, from the classic sketchy boardwalks to the beauty of Long Beach Island and Cape May. Diners were pretty much invented here, as were most of the work of Thomas Edison. Our tomatos are the best in the country, and we are home to WFMU, the best radio station on the planet. Bruce Springsteen and the Misfits both come from there, not to mention some great classic hip-hop and house music.

We are also a bizarre state filled with mysteries to a degree that makes most other states boring. Please visit http://www.weirdnj.com/ for starters.

I live in Brooklyn now, which I love, but I intend on moving back there eventually.

motown modown (Jody Beth Rosen), Friday, 29 October 2004 20:05 (seventeen years ago) link

when I was in elementary school we were taught about the Jersey Devil as if it was fact.

If you see the movie Garden State, which is interesting, not a great film, a bit sentimental/melodramatic but pretty entertaining, it's pretty OTM as far as Jersey is concerned. The giant cavern they visited? There was something like that right near my house. They had started to dig it out for construction but it was too rocky and they had to strand the cranes at the bottom of this pit. I used to play on them.

they could've lived in parts of New Jersey that weren't Newark of course. And I assume the Newark of 56 is not the Newark of today. Have you read Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint?

motown modown (Jody Beth Rosen), Friday, 29 October 2004 20:19 (seventeen years ago) link

the newark of today is definitely way different. there's been talk of a "newark renaissance" for some years now and while parts of it are still a bit sketch, the downtown area is generally really nice - the NJPAC and its surrounding area are great, at any rate. and my friends and i had planned on taking a day trip to the ironbound district over the summer but that unfortunately never materialized.

i go to school in new york and i love it here to death, but "indefensible?" any state that contains the godlike and glorious MAGIC GRILL (in garwood, nj) is way more worthy of defense than, say...actually, no, i'm not stooping to the "trash a state i've never been to" level. and yeah, fuck you to the people who judge nj from the vantage point of the turnpike/GS parkway alone (and i love the GS parkway, FWIW).

(this sounded a bit more jingoistic than i'd intended, but really. nj's a fine state.)

Adding to the contradictions that is NJ, disregarding the request to not discuss proximity to NYC, yes, while a portion of NJ is a suburb of NYC, another portion is a suburb of Philadelphia, and people who live in south Jersey do not in any way identify with north Jersey or NYC, despite it not being that long a drive.

Andrew J. Moywer -- is supposed to be Andrew J. Moyer. No "w" in that last name. And really, just because a state is considered "boring" and "lacking in 'culture'" to one person doesn't mean that that state is, in reality, "boring" or "lacking in 'culture'". News flash -- museums and galleries exist EVERYWHERE these days, and there's this newfangled thing called the Internet that makes that whole geographical distance thing a bit easier to deal with in terms of being exposed to others from outside one's own community.

Other reasons to love NJ:

Because of my Joisey accent, my best friend thought I grew up in Marstown until he flew out to NJ with me for a short vacation and we got off 287 at Morristown. He's from Virginia, where they don't skip syllables.

Incredible bakeries.

You had to get on a highway & back off one exit later to reach the closest place to buy milk from my parents old house. However, the store, was really only 1/4 mile away- just on the wrong side of the highway, without which, you could have walked over to it.

DINERS. I can't believe the rest of the country hasn't caught onto how to do these right.

I live in Morristown right now and type from there as we speak. It's a good town, and I'll be here for the foreseeable future as I just bought a house. Anyway, New Jersey is confusing and exciting and I never thought I'd end up here (back to where I grew up --well 7 miles from anyway-- ya know) but I love it. Jersey shoreline is etched in my bones. Very few good record stores around me. Great food, everywhere. Good people, culturally & economically and otherwise diverse neighborhood here, very walkable town. It's definitely defensible but maybe I'm biased so I'll let others defend it.

I'm going to go in any case but I'd like to know how much leeway I have over him for negotiating purposes. How much does the law support the renter?

YOU FOOLS PAY OVER $2.50 for a comic book (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 18 August 2013 02:24 (eight years ago) link

yeah but JC's perennial pending resurgence has been noted so many times that its dormant potential has become its defining narrative (the city's been cheap and accessible and unpretentious for so long precisely b/c its residents have insistently declined attempts to establish ~NYC culture~ that would essentially destroy it's raison d'etre even while raising its pulse above torpid). (11,000 new housing units in the pipeline obv suggest cultural upheaval via market forces, but I've also seen a fair amount of these new multi-unit monstrosities almost pitch black at night).

YOU FOOLS PAY OVER $2.50 for a comic book (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 18 August 2013 02:38 (eight years ago) link

I've had four apartments in the downtown area, but I haven't looked for a rental f/ years. (prices f/ property tho have been stagnant since the RE bubble popped, but I have noticed some of the larger buildings tenaciously clinging to their prices despite numerous empty units). $1750 admittedly seems high f/ a one-bedroom but it obv depends on yr criteria f/ ~nice and grown up~ (also JC's currency is p. cyclical compared to the more rigid arcs of NYC, maybe yr caught in a temporary upswing? idk).

Hellhouse, Sunday, 18 August 2013 03:07 (eight years ago) link

i think that post-sandy everyone wants to rent and no one wants to own. There are about six for sale signs on each block out here. condos near public transit start at 2k+ for a 1br

oh no i agree like everything feels a bit 'nicer' each year but its so gradual you barely notice. but there are these storefronts that seem to keep trying to get ahead of the curve, and have a succession of things like 8$ organic juices that just are not going to cut it, and eventually either they become another pizza and wings shop or office space. worst 'old jersey is going away' moment for me lately was europa deli having to close up.

Didn't they reopen? I thought they just renovated? Totally agree on the dipshittery of eight buck juice places. Plus they are generally poorly managed! My ex calls jersy city "the and of the half assed idea".

YOU FOOLS PAY OVER $2.50 for a comic book (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 18 August 2013 18:15 (eight years ago) link

they renovated and reopened and then one day there was an eviction notice up and now they're gone entirely. at one point before they folded, they started smoking their own salmon on occasion. it was the freshest smoked salmon i've had.

yeah forks I don't think you're ~rong~ or w/e, I mean, sure, there's Barcade and the bike shop and a handful of new restaurants and the goddamn family circus obstacle course at the Grove Street PATH entrance and how can I forget Lucky 7 next door which proudly hosts the worst garage rock in the Tri-State, but it's just a hodgepodge of misc. venues w/o any real traction. (waiting to see if JC will do anything interesting with the ~Powerhouse Arts District~ or will look to emulate WALDO's heroic transformation from thriving art community to noxious condo cluster).

Governor Chris Christie today announced that New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox will transition back to the private sector by the end of the month, when NJDOT Deputy Commissioner Joseph Bertoni will take over as Acting Commissioner.

A prominent Democrat who worked for both former Governor James McGreevey and former Senator Bob Torricelli, Fox worked as a lobbyist for United Airlines prior to going to the Christie Administration, and prior to the resignation of a United Airlines CEO amid a federal probe of the Bridgegate scandal.

WNYC’s Matt Katz reported earlier this week that while a lobbyist, “Fox tried to influence Democrats in the Legislature to back off from its investigation of the mysterious lane closures at the George Washington Bridge in the fall of 2013, according to three sources from the Legislature and Port Authority close to the investigation.”

People hoping to visit Island Beach State Park this holiday weekend were not allowed in because of the state government shutdown Gov. Chris Christie ordered amid the state budget standoff in Trenton.

But there was one family there: Christie's. They are using the summer beach house provided by the state for a weekend down the Shore.

And here are exclusive aerial photos by NJ Advance Media showing Christie surrounded by wife Mary Pat and others.

It was taken early Sunday afternoon before the governor headed to Trenton to hold another news conference about the shutdown.

In bombshell testimony that’s likely to dog the Christie administration in its final months, NJ Transit’s fired chief compliance officer said Friday he was forced out with little explanation after his repeated attempts to raise questions about systemic issues at the troubled agency, which he called a “runaway train.”...

Particularly troublesome to lawmakers were the issues of patronage hiring, which they have been looking at closely since last year. NJ Transit has been unable to provide resumes for numerous top staffers and officials could not explain why it had been unable to locate any such records.
