Two things:

(1) Who can really blame him for not wanting to live in Newark?

(2) Does any of this, if proven, affect his eligibility? Or would even bringing it up in corrupt NJ merely lead to another judicial farce like when Lautenberg illegally replaced Torricelli on the ballot in 2002?

Newark has some very nice areas, Watchung and West Orange among them.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Lost population since 1930, and over 50% black.

Seems more like Detroit, than anywhere I'd want to be near. (A few nice areas, or not.)

IIRC the same thing is said about Detroit, at least on one side of Three Mile Drive, though I have never been there so really don't know.

As to Olde North Church: Newark has some very nice areas, Watchung and West Orange among them. Lighten up. It was a joke, much in the same vein as Rush speaks of Rio Linda.

Actually, that was bit of a facetious answer.  Watchung and West Orange couldn't be further from Newark.  Diametrically opposed wouldn't begin to cover it.

That being the case, I apologize. I am most unfamiliar with the geography of NJ other than having driven through it a couple of times on my way to somewhere else.

I should be the one to apologize.  My comment was more in line with a local forum than a national one.

The unasked question:

Where DOES Cory Booker live?

Nothing new here. Look at the addresses some members of Congress use as their "official" residences. I remember Dick Gephardt claimed to live in a rundown old house his mother had owned in south St. Louis, but some reporter finally looked into it and it was not occupied. John D. Rockefeller IV hasn't lived in W.Va. since he was governor, but the idiot voters kept reelecting him to the Senate anyway.
