This is the issue we discussed for two hours Wednesday night at New Jersey 101.5. Gov. Phil Murphy said with great confidence in his state address on Tuesday:
We are proud of the steps we have taken to support our families, develop our economy, and make our communities better. and where the American Dream is alive and well. And we will never stop working to make New Jersey stronger, fairer and more affordable. As we move forward toward these goals, we believe we can shape the next New Jersey on behalf of all those who call our state home.
Afterwards, when he made such a speech, he received the thunderous applause that the audience gave the Governor.
But is the American Dream really alive and well outside the North Jersey mall of the same name?
If your dream is to work multiple jobs to maintain a house that drowns you in property taxes, drive a car or two so expensive you can only afford to pay for it, and maybe If you can afford it, vacation on the Jersey coast. Where you pay for both parks and beaches, the “American Dream” is alive and well. and live in New Jersey.
But if the American dream is still alive and well here, why are so many leaving? Are you lying, or is it worse?”
Do you think the American Dream is alive and well and you live in New Jersey as Gov. Murphy says?

What is the average price of a home in New Jersey? Median by county
Everything costs more these days. New Jersey housing is no exception.
South Jersey homes are on the market and sold in less than a month on average, according to data compiled by New Jersey real estate agents from January to August 2022.
Median single-family home prices reach $500,000 or more in nine northern and central Jersey counties.
All but two counties are selling homes above list price on average this year.
