Mark2102: Where in NJ do you live? I'm originally from Hackensack and Ringwood.

I have another to add:

You might be from 'Jersey if:

*Many businesses in town are mafia-operated.
*Your Italian friend's Dad is in the mafia.

I went to the same High School as Kevin Smith.... too close to home is a really big understatement.

Just couldnt resist it could you  Laugh out loud!

I wouldn't mind seeing a few places in New Jersey actually!

Off subject a little, but its definitely relevent. Do any of you local NJ'ers know the true location of the Soprano residence? Would be kinda cool to see that place, although the owners get p*ssed with people driving past and stopping for pictures  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You say Jersey instead of New Jersey. All my "Jersey" friends say this, we New Yorkers never do.


I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

I'm from Randolph, but moved to the Chicago area in March 2001. I still say 'Jersey and most of these apply to me. I rememeber Rickel's and Channel. I say Cawwwfee. My mom shopped at Shop-Rite. Didn't know how to pump gas when we moved to Chicago. I know what a jug handle is and people who cant make pizza can go learn to make Pizza.

You're from Jersey if

Big Hair is attractive to you.

You can name 4 or more malls that you frequent: i.e. Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Echelon, Deptford, and once in a while Burlington Center.

You know where the original Burlington Coat Factory is and your Mom took you there for Easter clothes.

The route to school be it elementary, middle, or high school involved a road divided by a jersey barrier.

You understand the origin of the New Jersey Devils name.

At least one of your friends from college was a Piney.

You know what Disco Fries are and love them especially with coffee at 230am.
