Jersey State of Mind

Newark, New Jersey gets a bad rap next to its famous neighbor New York. It smells worse, it's a bridge or tunnel away, It's the reason for 'Jersey Shore' but it still has a sense of humor.  This is a piss-take / parody of  "New York - Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z | Alicia Keys - Check it!

Aw. I grew up in Newark, and later a nearby 'burb. Thanks for this post!

But I bet most of the residents of New Jersey would defend their home state to the hilt if you challenged them. People get astonishingly loyal to the place they grew up.

@Nick: True but even residents of NJ (I'm now one) get a kick out of this as there is more than a little truth to it

Newark equals Philip Roth. And his Zuckerman books (read American pastoral you won't be disappointed.)
Is it still a Jewish stronghold?

@ Roy: I'll check it out - Newark is more Hispanic these days
