Nice ... I'm from NJ so I am all too familiar with that attitude.

People attend my organization's annual Vintage Computer East from four 
continents. When I tell New Yorkers about the event, they say, "Jersey? 
Oh, nevermind." As if I'd said we are in < your favorite far-off place

World Maker Faire is in Queens. Told me cousin to bring her husband

said it's too much hassle.
