New Jersey “Map” Goes Viral

This must be a difficult time for New Jersey. You see, in addition to finding out that they’re harboring the second most dangerous city in America (for the second year in a row), they’ve now got a traitor in their midst. His name is Joe Steinfield, and he is hilarious.

Well, I guess that depends on whether or not you live in one of his satirical regions of New Jersey and/or take offense to being lumped in with “Canadians and Philly Trash” (aka Wildwood according to Steinfield’s map).

Earlier this week, Steinfield posted a carefully constructed map of New Jersey describing the various regions of the state according to their perceived stereotype. The map quickly went viral on Reddit, garnering almost one million views in just one day.

Some of the descriptions are, frankly, spot-on, others are borderline offensive, albeit, highly amusing. The Keansburg area, for instance, is now “Where They Filmed Clerks,” while Atlantic City is renamed to “Sad Black People And Misguided Tourists.” The southern border of the state is referred to as “Swamps and Toxic Waste” and, in what is perhaps my favorite, the eastern area of  Washington and Phillipsburg is simply described as “Hill People.”

After NBC ran their obligatory “man on the street” piece asking natives their thoughts on the map (don’t they know that’s even worse for Jersey’s image?), Steinfield made a statement, “It was never meant to be taken seriously. I do regret that I offended a few people, however, for the most part, the feedback I’ve been getting is very positive.”

NBC also noted Steinfield works part-time for the Department of Environmental Protection, which, if I know anything about Jersey, means he’ll be picking up trash on the AC Expressway from now until March.

    This map is far from accurate.For instance the Cumberland and Salem counties have abundant amount of farm land.Secondly,I would love to know in what way any section of NJ is Alabama.

    Stone Harbor. Avalon and Ocean City included in “gaudy summer homes”?? You have gpt to be kidding. Those are nice TASTEFUL places. I do agree that Wildwood is kind of trashy. BUT North Wildwood and Cape May are not.  This guy does not know the area.

    You guys need to look up the word “Satire” to understand what a 
    SATIRICAL MAP is.

  • Beenhereawhile

    I would have swapped the Vast Wilderness of Retired Hippies and Rednecks and The Hill People labels.  My family has lived in New Jersey for over 400 years, and I’d say this is pretty accurate..

  • Dolsomer

    You see, this isn’t really satire.Definition of Satire- wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly. This comes from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. You have to use sarcasm to be considered satire. This is just simple over-generalization I can imagine. Definitely not satire though.

  • Dolsomer

    Ok it does have some satire like well to do Christians lol

  • Loraxlbt

    Lakewood is a sink hole Jewish community, it needs to be singled out on the map.  I’d also add a section of retired old people from Toms River North in what is what called Piney’s.  This area is a sea of age restricted communities.

    this map is totally correct except for one section, the friendly white families should just say white families no friendly!!!!!! one of the main reasons i moved out of that shit for green pastures, 98% of the people in that state are fucking rude!!!! “get the hell out of my way I’m a jersey asshole”

  • Marcy

    While this may be politically incorrect, it’s pretty much spot on.  And folks, remember, it’s a generalization meant for humor only.  Obviously, not every single person or home located within these general areas fits into the stereotype, but there are certainly enough that do…which is why it’s a generalization and a stereotype.  Now get over yourselves and laugh for once.

    I should make that Philly map – been in and around Philly half my life. I know the dump pretty well. As for New Jersey, a lot of the map is right on the money. I know the state all too well having lived there myself. Now you Jersey Girls telling Jersey bashers to go to another beach need to take a look in the mirror. Too many of you think you are special with that “Jersey Girl” title, and above all others. Many of you bash other states just as New Jersey is bashed. So let’s get real. As for New Jersey: What’s the attraction? What is it that makes New Jersey so special that it has to be among the top most expensive states for Auto Insurance?!?! And how about we go on to talk about homeowner’s property taxes!!!!! That’sone of the biggest jokes of them all. I happen to know for a fact taxes in Summerdale are around $6,000.00 a year, so shall we go on to talk about how many areas are in excess of $10,000.00 a year?!?! And for what?!?! New Jersey is over-rated and deserves to be bashed. BTW: I look forward to the comments bashing this post. I need a good laugh and cheap entertainment, and believe me, I will be laughing. Not posting comebacks out of frustration :) .

    the only thing wrong with the map from a true n.j. resident is that “lake houses owned by New Yorkers” and “farmers and subdevelopments” are mixed up… i live in stanhope half way between newton and wharton on 206 and the only thing above newton is FARM, FARM, and WIDE OPEN FIELDS, TREES, and FARMSSSSS. i know the map was meant as a joke which i did find most of it hilarious but those two are the only two out of place

    I’ve lived and worked in New Jersey… both North and South… some of the places I’ve “often frequented” for various reasons… (Irvington, Newark, Cranford, Wayne, Livingston, Piscataway, South Orange, Bridgewater, White House, Tewksberry, Mays Landing, Point Pleasant, Atlantic City…)…

    pretty much, I’ve been “everywhere” in the state and lived “mostly in various nice towns in the North…Cranford, Piscataway, Bridgewater, Hillsborough, and frequently stayed overnight in Flemington and Princeton areas.

    favorite areas:

    1.  most beautiful:  the North-West …Hunterdon County …from Princeton (one of my favorite towns…also Flemington) up thru Tewksberry… and over into Estate areas… Far Hills, Bedminster… and east to Morris County …plenty of Rich country areas there, too… there’s too much to say… so I’ll highlite some…NJ definitely has “loads of very rich people” sprinkled liberally throughout – “especially Morris, and much in Hunterdon Counties…(also lots down into bordering Somerset county).   To be sure, there are “rich people” sprinkled throughout the state… but there are large concentrations of “very rich” in those two counties, …this is often “way beyond McMansions.”  (like at least one billionaire I know of) 

    Princeton …Ivy League college town… one of the best in the world… the whole town and university reminds me of an English University and countryside. (best day-trip walking around in good weather)…if you’re more the “intellectual type.” (fantastic student town…and you can walk all over the university grounds – square miles…

    Flemington … best “upper middle class” tourist town… spend many weekends there… great walking around “main st” and tourist stuff…like a “mini Williamsburg.”  (best upscale Family town to take the kids…loads of stuff to do…Clinton…a few miles North up Rt 31 is “another nice town,” but “very small in scale and things to do” compared to Flemington…loads of “beautiful rolling hill country roads meandering thru farmland and woods…(Hunterdon my pick for best county in NJ (not richest, but rich, and  with “less woods” and more “rolling hill farmland” and lots to see and do for families)… yeah, there’s lots at the Jersey Shore…but I’m talking “nice family classy stuff here!”

    Bridgewater… lived there for several years… Yuppie…kind of like better sections of NYC…the Sports Bar in the Bridgewater Mall (4th richest in the country)…I used to meet lots of people from Manhattan…who considered it an “inspot.”  didn’t have to go to NYC to get the Manhattan ambience, etc.

    I now live in Mays Landing… but have friends or relatives in Basking Ridge, Round Valley and Tewksberry areas…

    Mays Landing is “one of the best towns” in deep South Jersey…great Jersey shore area…Atlantic City for casinos and shows, (Mays Landing is kind of like a less touristy Flemington area…quaint…not as rich…but their are “rich” areas…mostly in Galloway…and most hidden…lots of McMansions in some of those isolated Pineys…beaches:  Ventnor, Margate, Ocean City (best family beach in NJ …no alcohol), Sea Isle (like NC a bit), Avalon (very rich), Stone Harbor (rich)…and Cape May…(the Flemington of South Jersey and than-some)…great “family place” in nice weather…

    I’ve given you “some of the best stuff” in NJ… 

    I laughed when I saw this MAP …he calls it “considerably right” if you like to “zing and piss-off” people… but I find his characterizations and take…somewhat “accurate.”  …

    ..BUT IT FAILS TO PAINT a TRUE PICTURE… of the JERSEY I KNOW…lived and grew up in…

    the “New Jersey” …where there is SUCH A FANTASTIC VARIETY OF LIFESTYLES…is like A GIANT “SAMPLER” of the United States…and the “TERRIFIC VARIATIONS” are ALL JUST A “BRIEF DRIVE” from one another…that’s the “coolest thing” about “Jersey!”

  • Joe

    So I guess there are no happy or unpoor black communities in Jersey?

  • Flashrob

    of course there are:

    Camden

    Newark

    Trenton (the state capital) …BUT HAS LOTS OF NICE STUFF MIXED IN…and nice areas just a short drive…away.

    Irvington area (East Orange, too)  (just above Newark …where I was born, and spent my first nine years growing up, before I moved to: then “Cranford country (Venice of NJ…meandering river).

         Cranford is now a mostly a  white “yuppie” commuter train-town (closest nice town to NYC on that main rail line…
    just west…the next nice town is Westfield, very nice, and next on train line (Westfield is solidly “upper middle class”…old money.)

    IRVINGTON..was all white middle-class when I liver there (my first nine years) … now though, it’s “mostly black” …I have to say though…ON A RECENT VISIT “one of many houses my grandfather built there – THAT THE BLACK PEOPLE – who mostly came up from Newark bought and moved into…  the BLACK PEOPLE DID “A BEAUTIFUL JOB” in RESETTLING MUCH OF IRVINGTON…they redid the houses… putting aluminum siding over the clapboard, etc….IRVINGTON WAS “NICE LOOKING” when I lived their… AND IT’S EVEN LOOKING “CONSIDERABLY NICER, NOW!”  My “congratulations” to the “nice black people” who moved into Irvington… YOU DID YOURSELF PROUD!!!

    anyway, “been there done that”…mostly…

    FLASHROB

  • Flashrob

    sorry, I misread your post…

    Yes, there are lots of “un-poor and happy” black areas…

    as, I have indicated I was very much impressed how “many Black People” IMPROVED, CONSIDERABLY, the neighborhood, I grew up in, in my early years… IRVINGTON…

    … this also seems to be the case…as you move up into Maplewood, and South Orange…I recently visited Seton Hall Univ…I went to school there for several years…long ago…and though much of the surrounding area is NOW BLACK…felt very comfortable…

    massive changes have taken place at SHU  - since I attended the Prep school (now in W. Orange) and the university. The campus is “hugely built up” and loads of students were “going to and fro” – it was much more sedate when I went there …like back in the sixties, etc. –  Anyway, there were “loads of black, white, hispanic, and asian…students traversing the crowded pathways…

    THOUGH, it is “more like a city, now”… I WOULD “STILL ATTEND THERE NOW,” and think ”all the racial mix” would GREATLY ENHANCE “my education.”

    Seton Hall is more like the “Univ of Pa” now (in downtown Philly)…I liked the “great increase” in student population, of which, the most increase is in black students.”

    So, yes there are “definitely” areas that have “high black” percentages of population…THAT ARE “NEITHER” POOR, NOR UNHAPPY…

    Rutgers University is another area too, in the NEW BRUNSWICK area… lots of “middle class” black communities…THERE TOO…that are both “doing well financially and happy!”
    (I went to Rutgers for a few courses, too…lived in Piscataway…which also has a significant black population now, too)

    THIS HAS ALL BEEN “A BIG IMPROVEMENT” to me… 

    Essentially it seems to me:  as a “white” that I make it a point to ACCEPT PEOPLE AS “INDIVIDUALS” …though I am WHITE, IRISH-GERMAN-POLISH, CATHOLIC…my friends and people I like ARE NOT BASED ON “EXTERNAL CHARACTERISTICS”…

    Some of my “best friends” are Black, Jewish, Hispanic, Asian…IT’S THE INDIVIDUAL…

    some “people” I DON’T LIKE AND AVOID…”small thinking racist types,” etc.

    understand:  there are “black people” I don’t like…BUT THAT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK…

    it’s because they are “bad” …just like many people who are “just like them” and white, or jewish, hispanic, or asian…

    so, it depends on the PERSON/PERSONALITY…not some “external characteristic”…

    …then there are the “people” who by circumstances of their birth HAVE TO GROW OUT OF THEIR PREJUDICES, ETC. …I “try to give “this type” some LEEWAY” when I suspect they are IN THIS RANGE OF LEARNING…I cut these “on-the-line” types “some slack” hoping they learn and “grow out” of their ignorance.

    flashrob

    (by the way, some people consider me to be a real “bad-ass, streetwise type…but highly smart”) all of which is true…but “only some of the time.”

    tip, in case you don’t know:

    output the sound and video into a big flat screen type tv… (I won’t explain hdmi…most prob don’t have output on computer)…so

    vga (for video) and separate stereo sound (standard headphone out jack will do) OUT from computer to FLATSCREEN TV INPUTS…then TV OUT (can use standard red/white RCA jacks OUT FROM TV…and into amplifier…

    and you have these streaming Youtube rock videos on “fullscreen” size (just click on full screen on the actual video on your computer with your mouse) and have “computer display and tv” set to SIMULTANEOUS “duplicate screen” settings…(windows and your computer video display settings is where this is so you can set having the same image simultaneously on your computer display and the TV…)

    I use “Opera” browser (has the best sound code)…Firefox is pretty good, too…Chrome, in my experience is lousy…IE too much slowdown as a browser…

    so, unless you have “super high-end equip” you want to eliminate as many “bottlenecks” as possible…

    wireless…net slows you down too…but then you got to hardwire…damn nuisance…that’s my only bottleneck…(I got some 1gb computers hardwired…but don’t want to have to get a 100ft cable to reach from upstairs for the laptop I,m using downstairs, etc.).

    You get pretty good pics (but that depends on the Youtube video) …but I GET GREAT SOUND THRU THE STEREO…

    so, I just “lay back on the couch” AND SPACE OUT…got fullscreen, stereo amped up with heavy base, etc…. auto repeat, all enabled…great “high” …drinking or not…

    …and BEST OF ALL… these SONGS stoke my memory BACK TO “BETTER DAYS!”

    This map is a little off. For example, “the Hill People” really should read “the Hills Have Eyes people”. Anybody who has spent any time in that area know what I mean. 
    Also this map confuses ”Philly trash” for local New Jersey coastal riff-raff. Don’t forget it’s been the the tons of $$$’s spent by transient Philadelphians that has supported the Wildwoods end of the state for decades. Even during the bad times.
    And the “Italian guys in wife beaters” should extend the entire NJ coast from Cape May all the way to NYC. And ”sad Black people and misguided tourists” around Atlantic City should read “Sad Black people exploited by multi-million dollar casino owners and misguided tourists”. No such thing as “trickle-down” in this region of the state proven by the fact that land and beach areas that were once owned or occupied by African Americans for decades were mysteriously partitioned and rezoned in favor of carpet bagging out of staters. Besides, there are some HAPPY Black people living in Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, Asbury Park and even around Newark.
    Hey remember when South Jersey used to have some pretty decent farm lands owned by Blacks and fed by fresh water swamps? Some of the best peaches and blueberries in the world. Well that way of life has all been drained and sucked away and replace by expanding refineries, “toxic waste” and shopping centers. Now THAT’s sad.
    I still like New Jersey. There is no comparision between it and ANY other state. There is no other place like it for fun, diversity and ridiculous taxes. And it remains the only direct way to NYC. But I’ll never live there.  
    p.s. Pennsylvania’s ALABAMA is much scarier New Jersey’s. MUCH scarier.
