  • I lived in NJ for over 20 years (live in S. FL now). Depends where in Jersey you're relocating to. I know Morris county and Sussex county well.

    Sheesh, vbruno, why such hatred for Jersey? I'm don't have enough room to list all your reasons, then list 5.

  • I agree with above poster. I grew up in Morris County. It is perfect. A great area. Now I live by Bergen County. Also great. I love NJ. A great place to raise a family. Where in NJ are you moving?

  • Why the down vote for Long Island?? If the new job is near, most of Long Island commutes to Manhattan, NJ & CT.

  • NJ is nice where I live. We are three miles from NY. It is very much like Long Island.
