2. Not living in New Jersey
We love mocking New Jersey for its roadways riddled with jug handles and roundabouts; its skyline of industrial facilities that can be seen from the Philadelphia side; and the lasting stereotypical image of spray tans and big hair thanks to MTV’s Jersey Shore. The fact that everyone has taken at least one frustrating ride across the Ben Franklin Bridge after making a wrong turn in Old City definitely adds to the disdain. Whatever the reason, Philadelphians can all agree they would rather live in Al Capone’s haunted jail cell in the Eastern State Penitentiary than move to New Jersey.
