Why else do you think it is called the Garden State? In an attempt to stop the area from being overrun with tourists, the US created Jersey Shore
and spread rumors that the state was a place worse than death. Everything we think we have seen of the state is actually an elaborate Hollywood set filled with actors.
Did you really think such an awful place could exist in real life?
On a similar note, the Fountain of Youth is in Cleveland and Detroit was built to hide the Ark of the Covenant.
