When you brag about Jersey to people from out of state, you say: I tell people: ‘You are 50 miles from New York City and 50 miles from Philadelphia, with basically everything you’ve ever wanted or needed. You can fly almost anywhere in the world direct from Newark airport. You’ve got every kind of retailer and food you’ve ever wanted — and you’ve got the beaches. What’s not to like?’
