I am from Canada and I have to say, for some strange and bizarre reason, the only things we hear about New Jersey is that there is a " lot " of toxic dumps in New Jersey, not sure if its true or not, but there it is !!

Thanks for the real facts about New Jersey :)

Great facts.  I always used to tease my New Jersey friends about the state being little more than exits off the turnpike (I know there's more to it than that -- there are even farm)!
