Did you know people from New Jersey never use 'New' when they are talking about their home state?
It's just 'Jersey.'
Did you know people from New, er, Jersey never call NYC 'New York City'?
It's just 'The City.'
Did you know people in Jersey never 'go to the coast'?
to the shore.'
Also, hardly anyone who has lived here forever says 'Joizey.' However, they do pronounce 'water' as 'wood-er' or 'waud-er.'
People who live in northern Jersey consider themselves part of Metro NY.
People who live in southern Jersey consider themselves part of Metro Philly.
