I can speak to this...I was born in Montclair, went to school in Bloomfield and then moved down to Point Pleasant. I can tell you from living at the shore that people here do not consider this area "Southern NJ" everyone here HATES the Failyers
The Jersey Shore, for the most part, is located in Southern NJ. We can get into a geographical debate on if Seaside, Point Pleasant and the rest of those areas are considered "Northern or Southern" but I think anything past Mercer county is "South Jersey". Flyer territory especially.
