i bet it's cause half of r/NYC ended up moving here after rent increases pushed them out.


rockmasterflex t1_iz10yt2 wrote

Well yeah they saw that homes here were affordable in 2020 and were like "cant let that continue"


siikdUde t1_iz3eexa wrote

My new neighbor just paid 690k for a house that was valued at under 400k 2 years ago. I honestly don’t know why people are buying in this market


lnimical t1_iz373za wrote

Considering 99% of people living in Jersey were at some point NY residents, I find this comment comical. Reminds me of that Spiderman meme where he's pointing at himself.


rockmasterflex t1_iz3ox31 wrote

That’s a made up statistic if I ever saw one


lnimical t1_iz4xnk0 wrote

I'm offended and appalled that you would attack my made up statistic


siikdUde t1_iz3eiha wrote

Yea that makes sense. I have no idea why anyone would want to live in north jersey if they’re not transplants from NYC or work in NYC


MANWithTheHARMONlCA t1_iz185ig wrote

Not to mention the overall quality of almost everything in this state

Where is r/newjersey going after they price us out.


technotime t1_iz23q2a wrote

idk take your pick... I think these have been the most popular for Jersey transplants.

Charleston, SC is the southern equivalent of Portlandia.


siikdUde t1_iz3evq8 wrote

I’ve been to SC a couple times. One time while getting an Uber, the driver was talking to us about politics and history and then all of a sudden he said “….your president” and we were like what is he talking about lmao. Then it clicked that he was saying Lincoln was our president and not his. That was a trip. Also I couldn’t believe they have the confederate flag on their license plates. I legit thought it was a joke plate or something but nope, it’s official. Also a shit ton of churches literally every mile

Honestly, this sounds like a skit that could be on the show. Charlestonia. 😆

badquarter t1_iz0uop5 wrote

To be fair, NYC has both /r/nyc and /r/newyorkcity after some subreddit drama.


MiloMinderbinder-22 t1_iz107gr wrote

Do you know the backstory out of curiosity? I have always wondered about that...


badquarter t1_iz18p3h wrote

I'm going off memory but there was the one main mod at NYC who didn't allow picture and video posts then started banning people when they complained.


JKastnerPhoto t1_iz1k04c wrote

Yup. Years ago I posted one of my photos /r/NYC and it got me in Time Magazine, which was so amazing for my photo career.... now I was banned for a month for posting (what I feel) was similar content. That sub has gotten pretty harsh.

Edit: unrelated. The Reddit admins permabanned my account for no reason. If there is a reason they won't tell me. If you see this and want to vouch for me, please help. I have no recourse but can somehow edit old comments. I'm on Instagram and Twitter @jimmykastner if you want to reach out.

Whoever it was banned me for the stupidest thing, when I tried to ask for an explanation my whole reddit account was suspended

That's exactly what I'd expect anyone who got banned on reddit (and not only on a sub-reddit) to say.


NJ_Legion_Iced_Tea t1_iz2guil wrote

Normally I'd agree but there's a lot of power tripping mods who deserve zero respect


EagleFly_5 t1_iz0z2ke wrote

That’s true, they do have their own niches. At least it doesn’t apply to here.


sutisuc t1_iz11ex0 wrote

NYC has such a crummy sub for the largest city in the country. Cities like 1/4 or less their size have more active diverse subs


clearedtoland22 OP t1_iz187yt wrote

As an NYC ex-pat, one of the most favorite and notable changes now living in a suburb is the sense of community. I actually know our mailman, sanitation folks, bump into the mayor, and our elected officials - and neighbors of course. As a lifelong NY’er, it feels strange that I actually have access to these people.

Obviously, the complexity of our infrastructure or size of our population is by no means comparable. I’m more active in the communities out here because I don’t feel like a drop in the ocean.


dqqxmy1 t1_iz1cwb4 wrote

Meh, medium density like NJ has its own set of complexities right? E.g. unlike NYC that can build less transit (albeit more complex) to move lots of people, NJT needs to build way more to move computable amounts. Not to mention NYC operating at different levels of restrictions compared to NJ which needs to organize all the way from state to municipalities.


sutisuc t1_iz18bp8 wrote

Where did you end up?


clearedtoland22 OP t1_iz192s6 wrote

Union County. Definitely guilty of the affordable-home exodus but now I wish I’d done it so many years earlier.


sutisuc t1_iz19v8t wrote

Eh I mean the NYC-NJ pipeline goes back centuries you’re just being smart lol. And yeah I was born and raised in NJ but did a few years in NYC and very glad to be back on this side of the river now.


alheim t1_iz1iogm wrote

I'm from NJ (Monmouth shore town), been in the city for 15 years. I know the mailman, and we have a close knit and somewhat large group of friends from the community, mostly from the immediate neighborhood. Our elected officials come to the community board meetings and Civic association meetings. It's great. Don't get me wrong, I love it in NJ, but your experience is anecdotal. In NJ I was always in my car and that limited my ability to meet people.


ChestnutMoss t1_iz1qsvz wrote

I really like the mix of content in this subreddit. News, pictures, opinions, birthdays… it’s consistently interesting, so thanks everybody!

EagleFly_5 t1_iz0x4wr wrote

As a mod of both here & r/NYC as well as IRL I spend an equal amount of time in NJ & NYC, I feel highly conflicted on who to support 🤷🏼‍♂️, but for today, go team, glad we’re growing!

Im not saying NYC the actual city is MAGA, but the subreddit is for sure. Everyone I go on the NYC subreddit, it’s ultra conservatives complaining about liberals lol
