    Hey, I think it’s just a drive through on the way to New York from Philly. I could be wrong.

    Poor New Jersey. It’s like the red-headed step child. It’s mentioned because you pass thru it and see whatever little there is to see from the highway, but you never set foot on Jersey soil. Filler for the intinerary, just like Belgium on many of European tours, it’s mentioned as “passing thru” … that is unless you are on the Euro Impressions tour.

    Sucks doesn’t it – they could at least drive past Jon Bon Jovi’s house (I’m biased, I know)!

    Dam. Guess I can always go train it from NY.

    Get the train for sure. It’s doesn’t cost much on the PATH train. Hoboken is fun for going out at night. Can also get a great view of Manhattan from there.

    I have a few friends in NJ so will be definitely be heading up.

    Thanks for the advice pervy. Looked up some pics of Hoboken. Looks great.

    No worries, I have a friend that lives in NJ. I catch the train to see her when i’m in New York. It really is easy. Check out for train info.
