I love your shots but you lost major points for saying NJ is pretty much ny lol. Would you ever say minneapolis is pretty much a part of chicago???. I get the point that anytime your in NJ the focus is on ny, but thats what people here are trying to change and putting posts like this doesn't help us. Many of the things you think are so ny are actually NJ, so if you want to say ny is pretty much like NJ, that would work lol. but this isn't the time for it, great pics either way, I just hope next time you can make the focus solely on NJ and NEVER mention ny lol.

I'd say South Jersey has less similarities though. They prefer Philly sports teams and are in the range of Philly TV stations, not NYC ones (or they get both, like me).

some areas of new jersey are part of merto new york ,perhaps this is what the person was saying.
but some areas in these pics do look a tad like some areas within brooklyn or some other burrough as well
nice pics anyhow

These photos are awesome! I love the architecture. Some those rowhouses are absolutely gorgeous. Lots of family history comes from Jersey City, and its a really awesome looking place!

Obviously she means the Northern New Jersey inner suburbs (i know they are not really suburbs - i don't have a better word for them) are an extension of New York, and i don't see how one could disagree, except of course out of pride. They grew with new york and flow with the city with ease - identical in many ways, and many, even most, of these areas could be mistaken for New York City. The Minneapolis example is not the same because Minneapolis is 350 miles away from Chicago, and grew in an entirely different fashion. A better comparison would be Arlington and DC. Arlington may as well be considered part of DC for it is identical in many parts and grew with DC from the beginning.

Inner suburbs???? If your talking about Jersey City and Newark then you just proved my point. They aren't suburbs of ny, they are CITIES of NJ with suburbs of those cities, that statement shows the mentality people have towards NJ. It is all mentality that makes people think that ny has priority over what happens in this area. Of course it is pride that pushes me to even say anything and try to correct what i feel shouldn't be. It's the same pride that made cities like chicago and ny, without that same pride would anyone stay in those cities even though the rough times that both have gone through? I know that JC is neither of those cities and never can be, but we are trying to get our own distinction away from ny.

You are right about my analogy, i was wrong. I was thinking of Milwaukee but instead wrote Minneapolis but the former would still make it too far, i though MIL was closer to chicago. Arlington did grow along with DC but it is still given somewhat of a distinction. The way i see things, NJ didn't grow because of ny. I see it as ny grew BECAUSE of NJ, if it wasn't for the factories that have become synonymous with this state that served ny companies, what other locations would they have been put in or maybe wouldn't have served ny at all. That same priority that ny gets helped grow the city at the expense of NJ, and if the mentality was there from the beginning, that people from NJ should put NJ first, ny probably wouldn't have became the ny we all know now. Though that last statement can be seen in either way, i admit that is a case of half-full or half-empty lol.

In all, this is NOT the "6th borough", this is NOT "wall street west", this is JERSEY CITY. If we grew alongside ny, shouldn't we have the same status as ny and be viewed in the same way Minneapolis and St.Paul are?

I see.

As for me "proving your point", perhaps you don't read accurately. I clearly wrote that these photos are not of inner suburbs.

edit: though, i see your point. Obviously the key point in the whole thing is that there is an identity crisis.

Without disprespecting JC over here, MDguy is right in how I see things but clearly not everyone is going to look at it my way and that's fine. The northern New Jersey suburbs...the sub area's and the satellite cities like Newark and Jersey City that encompass the New York City metropolitan area are first and foremost--New Jersey State. Still, this specific area is very much NYC Met area which is really what this showcase is about. It's not New York state, I understand Jersey has it's own history and politics (believe me I do) and a culture all it's own as well but let'sw face it, there really isn't too much in North Jersey that is unlike Downstate New York let alone Metropolitan New York.

I recognize New Jersey is an entirely different state but with all due resect the North East Quarter of the state is all NY metropolitan area..in other words I would never refer to it as The Jersey Metropolitan area. I just thought the New York Metro area: Jersey would have been too much in a title. It's my fault I am lazy
