New Jersey towns keep popping up on lists lately. Most recently, Lambertville was named by Forbes among America’s 15 prettiest towns.

Here is the full list from Forbes:

  • New Iberia, Louisiana
  • Camden, Maine
  • Anna Maria, Florida
  • Decorah, Iowa
  • Breckenridge, Colorado
  • Fort Benton, Montana
  • Athens, Georgia
  • Lambertville, New Jersey
  • Kapa’a, Hawaii
  • Edgartown, Massachusetts
  • Asheville, North Carolina
  • Leavenworth, Washington
  • Galena, Illinois
  • Holland, Michigan
  • Fish Creek, Wisconsin

Apparently, Lambertville is on par with Kapa’a, Hawaii, Breckenridge, Colorado, and Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. Really?

I wonder what Forbes would have thought of the old abandoned Lambertville High School before it was finally torn down.

Nonetheless, when it comes to Lambertville, Forbes says,

Tiny Lambertville, on the shores of the Delaware River in western New Jersey, packs a lot of small-town punch, welcoming visitors with some of the best antique shopping in the Northeast, as well as with its selection of galleries, shops, and restaurants. “It’s quaint as heck, with a lot of old Atlantic flare,” says Evans. Stay at one of the town’s welcoming B&Bs and save yourself the drive home – located just an hour and a half from Midtown Manhattan, the country charm seems a world away.

So are they saying most of New Jersey isn’t that nice? And if so, if these magazines had different list categories, could more New Jersey towns play along? I offer the following suggestions to Forbes.

  1. Smelliest Towns In America
  2. Towns With The Most Red Light Cameras
  3. Top 10 Meanest Towns In U.S.
  4. Small Cities, Big Crimes
  5. Corruption On The Cul-De-Sac, Where The Dirtiest Politicians Live
  6. Elderly Driver Hamlets
  7. Bucolic Locales With Long Nails And Short Tempers
  8. Permit Parking Paradise
  9. Ten American Towns With Stickiest Sidewalks
  10. Small Cities WIth Big Douchebag Attitudes

Hopefully we could get a much higher participation rate. At least a lot of honorable mentions.
