    I've always thought New Jersey to be an interesting blend of industry and peace-you can be a short drive from both the largest city in America, as well as deserted areas.
    The last time my family and I went through NJ by car, we got off the turnpike in a few places because my dad wanted to save money. It was a really beautiful trip, and I erally enjoyed it!



    So ease back in The Garden State...it's no California, but HEY! It's better than most people picture it to be!

    Joizey is the richest state in the country? Really?
    There are entire towns in this state where the median income is $5 million. Also, 1/2 the Fortune 500 are headquartered here.

    Sure there a fine places in New Jersey I just don't really care for the rest. Kind of like Maryland.


    Tanuj, Princeton is in Southern NJ so it might be easier to go to PHL. PHL's only problem is you better like US Airways.

    I don't really know. In in the 70's, there was a huge mafia presence and they were involved with everything. Sleazy politics and pollution were also a problem. As well, there really isnít anything HUGE about NJ. I mean, itís just a suburb of NYC, essentially, and it doesnít have any redeeming quality of its own. You can say that itís overshadowed by NY so nobody really notices NJ.

    But things have changed a lot now and the past few governors have had a long term plan to really improve the place Ė mostly at the expense of NYC.

    They succeeded in the North, but Southern Jersey is still a shithole (because itís mostly associated with Philadelphia and things arenít so how down there). Most parts of North and Central Jersey are nice. I especially like the Jersey Shore around Sea Girt and Sandy Hook. You can get an amazing view of JFK traffic from some parts of the Jersey Shore, especially Sandy Hook.

    Point is, NJ never really shook off that reputation eventhough it isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Being the richest state should speak multitudes.

    A lot of people knock NJ (and it does have a bad reputation), but I really like it. Itís the richest state in the country and actually doing quite well economically. Lots of companies have moved the offices from Manhattan to NJ. Iím seriously looking to move there from Queens within the next year. I love Queens and all, but NJ is cheaper to live and the taxes are lower. One problem is that you do need a car, especially where you will be, to survive there.

    Princeton is a very, very nice area and youíd feel right at home as a lot of Asians and South Asians live in the vicinity. Itís only about a 45 min. train ride to Manhattan Penn Station from Princeton on the NJ transit.

    Comparing the two airports, JFK has much more variety, but EWR has a lot as well. EWR has more aircraft movements, but JFK now handles more passengers. Also, AI will increase their frequency to EWR to daily as that flight is doing well being expectations. Word is you cannot even book a seat anymore. And itís not just India-bound traffic, but those going to CDG as well.

    If you have any questions about NJ or the NYC metro area, please let me know.

    P.S. You might get bored in your neighborhood though.

    Greg, what's wrong with NJ?

    My dad saw Manhattan and he found it much to cramped, crowded and noisy, and he preferred New Jersey.

    Don't forget that it will cost you at least $14 each time you go to JFK just because of tolls. Make that $17 if you wanna take the turnpike.

    New Jersey!!!!!

    Nice to see you moving to the East Coast but New Jersey of all places? i think you would like a Penthouse in Manhattan better. No honestly New Jersey is a nice state you just have to look for the niceness.

    You could always take the Amtrak NEC down to BWI station and catch a bus over to the terminal, you'de get some nice pics from there.
