Man redraws New Jersey map based on geographic stereotypes

    Where in New Jersey will you find McMansions? How ’bout gaudy summer homes and toxic waste?

    There’s a new map of the Garden State making the rounds, courtesy of Westfield native Joe Steinfeld. He’s taken what he says is meant to be a humorous approach to redrawing the state according to geographic stereotypes.

    Down the Shore, you’ll find Canadians and Philly trash. Parts of Salem County have been re-labeled “Swamps and Toxic Waste.”

    Steinfeld tells the Star-Ledger the map took him about two hours to make. It went viral within 24 hours.
