Where Are The Lines Between North, Central, and South Jersey? [POLL]
It’s an age-old debate, and I think it’s time to settle it once and for all.
Are we in North, Central, or South Jersey?
I grew up in Marlboro (Monmouth County) and always thought of myself as living in Central Jersey. North Jersey was Union County and above…South Jersey was anything below 195.
You talk to people in Toms River, and they’ll say they too live in Central Jersey, and South Jersey doesn’t start until Rt 72.
I had a friend in college from Bergen County and when she found out I was from Monmouth County, she said, oh, that’s South Jersey. Plenty of people consider Middlesex and Somerset to be Central and everything else to be South.
I find that a lot of people fear the “South Jersey” title…(I think we all know why. Things are slower in the lower half of the state…in some places it seems like a whole other world. And I don’t want to get all riled up again thinking about South Jersey drivers…)
That said, I think we can all agree that Monmouth and Ocean Counties are pretty much the best in the state.
But let’s get down to it.
