Introducing The Jersey Girl List!

The Jersey Girl List is meant to be an easy-to-use resource for all of the posts on this site as well as other awesome sites I have found and want to share with you.  The Jersey Girl List is updated nearly every day, so visit often to see new updates.

There’s a strong movement out there right now to promote the best of New Jersey and defend against stereotypes, and this site will continue to do whatever possible to support that cause.  As always, please send me an email or post a comment on the site if you have something you want to check out.

  1. Hello Mel, I stumbled upon your on a lazy Sat afternoon. Will you be able to advise me on the the perception people have on NJ? I’m looking to move over next April 😀 Thanks!


    • Hi Ann,
      The perception that people have of NJ? Honestly, I think it depends on who you ask. Anyone who has spent time here knows that it is a really diverse state; we have cities, beaches, mountains, farmland, you name it.

      Sadly, people who’ve never been here, or never took the time to really explore beyond one small area they may have seen, just go by what the media has portrayed NJ to be. You can’t go by that. The “Jersey” shows that are so popular these days are not what NJ is all about.

      What area of NJ are you considering? Where do you live now?


  2. Hey Mel,

    I am actually residing in Singapore at the moment. My job would require me to choose between New york and New Jersey. New york is pretty happening but I think it would be too much for me personally. Was thinking of New Brunswick or Toms River and despite all of that, I do have a good impression of NJ. Any suggestions?


    • Well, the New Brunswick area is a good choice; there’s a lot happening in New Brunswick. There are great restaurants, theaters, and plenty of things to do in the area because of Rutgers University. New Brunswick is located right near several major roads (Rt. 1, Rt. 27, Rt. 18 and the Turnpike) and a train station. There have been a lot of improvements made in the city recently and it is a desirable place to live. You can check out more about New Brunswick on this website: I am not as familiar with Toms River, but you may like it if you are interested in living near the shore.

      Good luck with your move!
