    Note: Video may have been shot outside of New Jersey due to dense smog.

    Still, not a bad "Come to Our State" for them.

    First of all, most (if not all) of that footage is not from New Jersey. Second, I love New Jersey. There are all kinds of idiotic stereotypes about New Jersey, but it`s really a great state.

    Jersey, like all states, has it`s bad areas (Camden, etc.). But also has beautiful spots like the Jersey shore..

    The Jersey shore (don`t say beaches) is vastly overrated. First, you have to fight your way through traffic jams and toll booths. Next, you have to pay for parking. Then you have to pay for beach tags to use a public beach! Finally, the ocean will be murky, freezing cold, or filled with jellyfish.

    Yea, that was highly stupid. Nothing to do with NJ at all. Which makes it funnier that someone couldn`t find enough stupid crap in NJ to make an authentic "NJ is lousey" video.

    I do highly endorse NJ being split into North and South. There`s the Philly people, and the NY people, and they`re very different.

    Oh yea, and the Shore rocks, just don`t go on the weekend ya shoebie!

    I was born in Coltsneck, NJ and loved the state. There are so many stereotypes of Jersey people, and many of them aren`t true.

    I`m from Jersey. There`s nothing wrong with Jersey, it`s a fine state. We`ve got cultural diversity and one of the best state economies in the country. Other than the piece of crap that is the NJ Turnpike, I don`t see why everyone makes fun of us so much.

    that`s because Jersey has the highest auto insurance rates, property tax, cigarette tax, second highest statewide housing costs (73% above the national average), third highest cost of doing business, fourth highest health insurance costs, fifth highest amount of tax-supported debt, overall cost of living is 32% above the national average, all in the nation.
    NJ collects income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, sin taxes, casino taxes, tourism taxes, and highway tolls, yet the state has massive budget problems.
    New Jersey is the only state that was stupid enough to lose $469 million dollars on a toll collection system! To pay for that mess, New Jersey now charges $1 a month for the "privilege" of using its E-ZPass.

    slippery said it...NJ sucks. i live there. it costs soo much friggin money to live here. our property taxes go up every year...alot and they had this tax rebate thing that everyone used to get...now they call it the FAIR rebate...and only old people get it or something like that or not old people are restricted to a low amount of money recieved.. and car insurance is killer, especially for people under 21. it dosent help that the politicians are all democrats and think the solution to problems is taxes. well republicans are probably like that too...just less than Dems. just so you know, i hate politics.

    Hey, I love NJ. Its not a dump like some places Ive been to. Of course, I live in Morris County which is ony of the richest counties in the US. It might be expensive to live here, but I think most people get paid more compared to other parts. That and we have houses at least every couple of miles. Some states dont have anything but land for 100s of miles. It sounds boring in those places.

    There`s no sales tax on clothing in NJ, and everything costs more but people get paid more. We`re more densely populated than Japan and people are still moving here. McMansions goin up on every corner, and NJ still has more horses than Kentucky! Go go Garden State!

    I don`t quite have to pay so many taxes just yet, but my parents do. They still love it in New Jersey. My family has lived in Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia, and my parents would tell you in a heartbeat that they`d rather live in New Jersey.

    New Jersey is completely horrible, and the only people who don`t think so are the people who would have to admit they were idiots for living there. Nobody in this comment page said, "I visit there six or seven times a year from another state, and I love it" -- only the pipe-hittin` jerk wads from Ramsey and Hoboken are in here trying to tell the rest of us how great it is.

    that whale footage is most definitely from Oregon. That leads me to wonder how much of that is actually New Jersey.

    If I lived close enough I would visit six or seven times a year, or probably more! I love the Jersey shore, I have WONDERFUL memories of going there as a child every summer to Brigantine and Atlantic City. And when I`ve been there since (and not just to the shore, though the shore is my favorite), I`ve still really enjoyed it. I love New Jersey, I do not live there and have never lived there, so you`re full of crap.
