Is it true the state motto is, "The armpit of America"?

No, that's the town of Battle Mountain, Nevada.

So, now poor people are bad?

And what kind of name is "Sea Girt"?  And "Ho-Ho-Kus"?  Eww.

I prefer to live in a decent state, with normal names like Sequim and Humptulips, thanks.
We have under-privelaged people too. I am trying to brag about the positives though.

The working class of America ARE positives.  They are what makes this country great.  I am ashamed of people like you, the classists, the status quo-lickers, the reactionary elite.  Politics by the people!!!

Oh, my mistake, it's the Verizon WIRELESS headquarters, not for the whole corporation.  Oh well, it's still cool.  It's this HUGE complex on the outskirts of town.  There was controversy because previous owners Pfizer and AT&T allowed people to own homes on the edges of the gigantic property but Verizon ordered them off the property.
Yea, family used to work there. Finally they are actually moving in.

Verizon? Isn't that the company Bruce Springsteen keeps singing about?

Step on up to Verizon...

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Why are you all so snobby (at least those from north Jersey)?

Seriously, because we're awesome.

the Hamptons are the Hamptons.  the End Smiley.  Seriously though its not what it was and both Long Islanders and new jersians enjoy each others beaches, though nothing in Jersey tops the Hamptons.

Ever heard of a little town called Mantoloking?  Yeah, it makes the Hamptons look like trash.

My grandparents live in Mantoloking.  It's REALLY nice.  The average house sells for over around 1.5 million.  My grandma's house is worth 1.7 million.

It's crazy.  The beaches are IMMACULATE and private.

And, by the way, we ARE awesome. Tongue

I know, really!  Maybe our town will actually get the Verizon cable service thing... I don't remember what it's called but Bernardsville has it for some reason.

Most definately. Oh and I am not Italian but I know people who very well could have "connections". (Who am I kidding, I am almost certain)

Me neither, but I know quite a few people with connections, so we're good. Tongue
Pretty weird, you would have thought at least one of us was.

I'm Italian, but I'm not affiliated with the mafia... That I know of...

Ho-ho-kus is where my dad grew up.  It's really nice there.  Right next to Ridgewood.

I like Basking Ridge and Mantoloking better. Smiley

I'm from Central Islip.

Yeah, the Haptons pretty much are LI's trump card.  Oh, and Fire Island, until it disappears under the waves.

TOWN (ZIP CODE) / MEDIAN HOME PRICE
WATER MILL, N.Y. (11976) / $1.58 million
MANTOLOKING, N.J. (08738) / $1.33 million

No other Hamptons towns even made it close.  You are fast losing your grip on extremely over-priced yet lovely beach getaways.  And I must say, Mantoloking is quite a high-class, up and coming town.  Rin-chan owns a house down there that I went to visit with her, and it was perfect.  I can't imagine the Hamptons being any better.

The Hamptons suck.  My uncle used to live there.  There are only like one or two towns that are kinda nice, but nowhere near Mantoloking.

Oh, and wannt know why Mantoloking is so spiffy?  No school in town.  That makes for less money wasted on taxes.

What area are you from?
Family all around North Jersey, Bergen and Passaic and Hudson. I live in Sussex County. How about you?

Family in Passaic and Camden, I'm in Somerset.

I have family in Ocean and Somerset.  And, like Fezzy, I live in Somerset. Grin

Is Somerset considered North Jersey? I'd say it's Central. North Jersey ROCKS!
