What’s the deal with New York and New Jersey?
Much like the television families on “Dynasty” and “Dallas,” tension between the two jurisdictions never ceases; only the issues change. In the past decade, the rivalry between the City of New York and the New Jersey communities across the Hudson has broadened to include a variety of issues other than competition for ocean cargo. The opposing camps have waged a constant struggle over issues such as competition for jobs, a $40 million Urban Development Action Grant for Jersey City, Westway, ocean dumping by New York City, and the movement of back offices from Manhattan.
