I could see Vineland and Atlantic County see a decline. The area around Trenton and Camden might continue to grow but at a slow rate. As a proxy to Philly, you'd think it would grow much faster due to the generally low prices relative to lets say Hunterdon County or the areas near Princeton. I attribute horrid schools and crime for the stagnation.

Central NJ is expensive, and growth out in the burbs (where I'm at) is very slow. Places like Plainfield might account for most of the growth. There is a heavy Hispanic population in Plainfield. There have been some apartments built near the rail lines, but not much really going on in Somerset County.

Essex and Hudson County is where the action is at. Also with Edison, Middlesex is up there. Although Edison NJ is a hellhole. Horribly planned and text book definition of urban sprawl.
