"Petrochemical Refinery State? Not primarily, certainly. It's actually quite pretty here in the fall - the trees turn a hundred shades of purple, red, yellow, orange, lime, gold, and brown. The air becomes filled with blowing leaves. Walking through the parks is breathtaking - like being inside a flower. The squirrels and birds get into a frenzy eating everything they can find in preparation for winter. Fall is probably the nicest time of year in New Jersey. Unfortunately, it doesn't last nearly as long as winter does...
