What Americans Think About When They Think About New Jersey


People outside of the state were asked: “What comes to mind when you think about New Jersey?” writes NewJerseyNewsroom.com.

The number-one answer... “New York” or “next to New York.”

The “shore” or “ocean” or “beach” share billing for number two.

“New Jersey forever struggles in the shadow of New York for its identity,” Prof. Peter Woolley, the poll’s director, said. “I think we’d rather be known for the shoreline than for someplace to move to if you can’t afford New York City,” NewJerseyNewsroom.com adds.

“Corruption” or “crime” or the “mafia,” which were number two last year, made the list again as number four.

So the state is losing the connotation reinforced by all those years of Tony Soprano murdering and conniving on our TV screen every Sunday night. Boy, do I miss him....
