Because here comes some more. N.J. man puts rednecks, hippies and misguided tourists on the map New Jersey Star-LedgerIf you live in the northwestern corner of New Jersey, you're a resident of the "Vast Wilderness Of Rednecks And Retired Hippies." Hail from Atlantic City? Welcome to the land of "Sad Black People And Misguided Tourists."Think you know where you live? Hah.Forget about what exit you are off the Garden State Parkway or New Jersey Turnpike. You also can toss out the new redistricting map politicians took months to put together.In a mere two hours, Joe Steinfeld redrew the map of New Jersey, using many of the state’s stereotypes in his color-coded opus. The map, which the Rutgers graduate posted online Monday, went viral within 24 hours, gathering 800,000 hits as it circulated through blogs, Facebook and Twitter.Steinfeld’s approach was light-hearted, but with regions like "Pineys ... Pineys Everywhere," "Ghetto In The Woods" and "Sad Black People And Corruption," not everyone looking at the map has been able to locate their funny bone."I meant it as a joke. It’s tongue-in-cheek. It’s meant to be silly, meant to be fun," Steinfeld said Wednesday. He filled the map with stereotypes he said he encountered growing up in and traveling New Jersey, labeling a swath of Bergen County "Well-To-Do Conservatives ‘Christie Country’ " and parts of Salem and Cumberland counties "Pretty Much Alabama."[attachment=35245:new jersey regions.jpg]Oh, and by the way, don't ask me my exit from the Turnpike - I lived 2 blocks south of route 4 and 3 blocks north of Interstate 80, but nowhere near the NJ Turnpike.And, for the record, I am from the top right portion on the map - it is so wrong and that is not me.Best regards.Luis
