5 Things That Makes New Jersey Great That Only True New Jerseyans Know

 5 Things That Makes New Jersey Great That Only True New Jerseyans Know
BY MICHAEL HAYNE
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOMCOM

New Jersey (not New Joisey!), even with its weird chemical smells (or burning arses), soaring property taxes and political corruption, is still an incredible place to live. We have mountains, lakes, rivers, cities, and the freaking Atlantic Ocean! So living here is probably going to cost you a little coin, but who the heck wants to live in Texas or Nebraska.

Now, anyone who's anyone grew up in the Garden State (IE, Woodrow Wilson, Bruce Springsteen, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Spacey, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, et al.). So it can be said that New Jersey is the incubator of great talent and minds. Hurricane Sandy, despite its vast destruction to some of the state's most cherished places. still wasn't able to kill the plucky and tenacious spirit of New Jersey. One might even say that New Jersey is the black sheep of America; nobody understands it and it refuses to go away or change who it is.
