RIP North and South . . .

My journey up to northwestern New Jersey was eye opening. More and more this line is not so much looking as North and South Jersey, but the old East/ West Jersey that was in place in colonial times. People in Phillipsburg, have more in common with Philadelphians than they do North Jerseyans. Drive a little east to Clinton or north to Belvidere and that influence disappears. The river towns from Mercer, through Hunterdon all the way up to southern Warren county all have a little more "South" Jersey to them than "North." I'll be at the Frenchtown River Fest this weekend to investigate further.

This project just got more interesting and more confusing:
