The Lost State of South Jersey

I'm buried in work this week, so until I dig myself out, check out a piece I wrote for New Jersey Monthly about the lost state of South Jersey.

It's an interview with Michael J. Tricklein, author of Lost States. My favorite quote from the book:

“Admittedly, northern New Jersey is urban and asphalt covered,” he writes in Lost States. “But the south and western parts of the state are surprisingly rural and unspoiled. It’s this dichotomy that has led to 300 years of attempts to divide the state in two.”

Couldn't have said it better myself.
