    Agreed. It is good to know immediately where you stand. Direct and blunt beats phony any day of the week for me.

    I grew up in Vailsburg (which was a great place in the 60's and 70's), went to Seton Hall Prep and SHU (for a while). Saw my first concert at SHU, at 12 years old: Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield , Strawberry Alarm Clock and Soul Survivors.

    Also known as the Hoagie line (to the north they are Subs)

    I feel the same way when I'm out in CA. Not that there is a hidden animosity lifl some parts of the south, but that people aren't being totally straight up with me. I prefer the brashness of the northeast.

    I grew up in Tom's River and call them subs but Taylor Ham is still pork roll to me. Must be because I'm right on the dividing line!

    Why does NJ have the most toxic waste dumps but Washington, DC the most lawyers?

    Because NJ had first choice!

    Aliens from the Andromeda galaxy radioed back to their homeworld that they'd found intelligent life all over the planet earth ... except for parts of Jersey!

    Fox and Falcon? Can't help you with the parking. It's brutal on Friday nights.

    Hah, yeah. And if you haven't played there yet but plan to, bring a mixer. They have a little Alto house mixer, but it's connected in some weird way (maybe the control outs are run to the mains?). On the plus side, nice people, good food and Dave (owner or manager) seems like a great guy.

    Born in Hackensack, was a kid in a small borough North East corner of Bergen County not far from the George Washington Bridge.

    It was a 1960's small town culture with street wiffle ball, neighborhood Christmas carolers, 4th of July parades, Santa Claus visits, sleigh riding in my backyard, neighborhood cookouts, the whole town showed up to Thanksgiving football games, milkman deliveries, little league, boy scouts, etc. Nice place to grow up. All the neighbors knew each other.

    Moved when I was 11. Still have some friends there.

    A lot of the dairy farms are mc mansions now.

    Taxes are through the roof.

    Lived in Joizy Siddy when I worked in Manhattan.

    Moved out as fast as I could.

    PRO:

    1. Fabulous view of lower Manhattan.

    2. So much great Doo Wop from there.
    (Springsteen, Bon Jovi? Meh. I’ll take the Duprees & Shirelles any day.)



    CON: Too many for me to list

    Wow. You hit it so spot on I'd buy you a beer if I could. I'm a native Jersian who lives in NC and I love it. This is not a blanket statement but there is a ton of that you have to wade through. :aok

    Just spent several days in beautiful Princeton, NJ and also met with up a fellow TGP member to check out some local sites/music stuff. Great, great town. Loved it. Been to other parts of Jersey that were less scenic.

    Really? Lets see...

    I was hanging out in York yesterday and I decided to road trip to Hampshire...

    Yeah, no. Jersey FTW

    Of course this TOTALLY works if you live in Britain!

    I liked the people there. I met some good peeps when I was living up in Noo Joizy.
    I just thought it was a shame they had to live that place.

    Since then, I’ve had friends from there who were fortunate enough to escape.

    What a place, Elizabeth, Camden, Newark.

    Walt Whitman was from Camden. Is that a great town - or what?
