If I beat you with a stick but hand you a piece of bubble gum will you still call me a friend?

I lived there for 16 years. Not sure whether lived is the appropriate verb.

The stench when entering the garden state from New York is enough to turn your stomach. Pay me to live there and I would turn it down. All those vegetables are available in roadside stands and markets anyway. Live there for a statistic? No thank you.

Well, Eli Manning lives there.

Other than that, I can’t think of a compelling reason.

The state has a well-deserved awful reputation, but if you travel within a radius of 15 miles of this place you'll come across some of the prettiest places you'll find in North America:

New Jersey has many friendly social organizations. That’s a plus, I guess.

NJ actually is a great place, and it’s much more than NYC urban sprawl.

The south and central are often very charming. I found many outdoor table restaurants in Various towns in the ‘90s where I’d not seen them really before. Great RevWar history which brought me there as well as work at the time (occasional trips to contractors there).

I also have a soft spot for it as the birthplace of my beloved wonder dog, decades ago, in the same town as Lindbergh lived.

Worst about NJ? Jug-handle turns. Hands down.

The worst thing

Having lived in NJ for around 45 years just about every item on the list is a nice place to visit when you live in another state with 1\2 of the property tax and 1\4th of the income tax burden. So move like I did and visit those places. Side note the cowtown rodeo is a nice show to visit but the Corner bar is a dump not worth the visit.

“Does any state pack as much variety into one compact package as New Jersey? Nope.”

Um, Yup. It’s called New York, which also has cute small towns, beaches, better and more historic cities, mountains, many lakes of various sizes, diners, waterfalls, wineries, Amish, Indian gaming and handicrafts, farm stands, collectible rocks and minerals, more variety of wildlife, skiing, nicer rivers, bigger forests, and actual scenic highways, which I never saw living in NJ.

Forget that store-bought, grown-in-California, -Mexico, -Peru or wherever produce. Nothing beats a tomato, peach or other fruit or vegetable from a Jersey roadside stand.

Most of what you buy at a road side stand is actually " grown-in-California, -Mexico, -Peru or wherever produce".

That far north the produce does not really come in until the mid to late summer. Which is not when people are buying. They want to buy "farm fresh vegetables" in the spring.

Same thing at the farmer's market. If it seems a bit early for what you are seeing it was trucked in.

I have had to travel to NJ and NY for business many, many times. No thanks!!! That is like saying living in Venezuela is great because you can work in North Korea and come home. Issue politician hunting licenses and you will get people moving there instead of moving out.

I prefer South Jersey. But the whole state has some beautiful areas.

NJ could be perfect, if not for the high taxes and the politics.
