Oh my beloved home state. On the plus side, we are the wealthiest or second wealthiest state in the union in any given year.


TITCAR

Pennsylvania is, outside of Philadelphia, the WORST state on the East Coast... there is NOTHING there. Same goes for New York.. the parts that aren't on an island are pretty much dead.

NJ is 100% metropolitan and exciting.

also... any dumping that might happen, probably happens in Bergen county anyway... they're pretty trashy up there.

yeah, it probably doesnt help that a lot of people in CT/NJ have summer homes in NJ/CT...

I have no qualm with those Connecticuttians (Connecticutters?... Tony Danzites? What do you prefer) who appreciate the glory of the Jersey Shore.

Wasps seems to work quite well.

Wikipedia says "nutmeggers" and "yankees" are the correct terms, though Connecticuttians works for me.

Yeah we probably do swap a lot...considering we both have our dumps like Bridgeport or Newark, but then a lot of really rich places...and we don't have as many as New York does (though if you combined LI, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, and Dutchess counties into a seperate state we'd have some tough competition).

Also I've heard that Bergen, Morris, and Somerset were also the richest counties in the country.

Where I live was rated #3 best place to live by Money Magazine and my town is supposedly one of the "hottest" on the East Coast but I'd have to disagree...

Number of counties by state in the top 100: Colorado 10, Virginia 10, New Jersey 9, California 7, Florida 6, New York 6, Georgia 4, Maryland 4, Minnesota 4, Connecticut 3, Massachusetts 3, Michigan 3, Pennsylvania 3, Texas 3, Illinois 2, North Carolina 2, Ohio 2, Rhode Island 2, Washington 2, Wisconsin 2, Alaska 1, Alabama 1, District of Columbia 1, Indiana 1, Kansas 1, Missouri 1, Nevada 1, New Hampshire 1, New Mexico 1, Tennessee 1, Utah 1, Wyoming 1. Nineteen states do not have any counties in the top 100.

Bergen county is overrated, IMHO... but... according to Wikipedia:

BY PER CAPITA INCOME
Rank     County
5           Fairfield Cty, CT
7           Somerset Cty, NJ
10         Morris Cty, NJ
13         Hunterdon Cty, NJ
21         Bergen Cty, NJ
42         Monmouth Cty, NJ
68         Litchfield Cty, CT
70         Middlesex Cty, CT
80         Mercer Cty, NJ
92         Sussex Cty, NJ
93         Union Cty, NJ
100       Middlesex Cty, NJ

There was a similar result for Median Household Income...

As far as the states in general, CT has a higher Per Capita income than NJ and NJ has the higher Median Household Income (more soccer moms?). They are #1 and #2 in both categories...

My point: NY and Pennsylvania suck balls, and their residents only rip on NJ because they wish they could be us. Werd. Especially New Yorkers (even though I love me some NY sports).

I prefer to think of myself as lower-upper class, thank you.
