Although NJ tends to have a reputation as the armpit of the earth, most of what people see on the turnpike (and via those ass-hats on the Jersey Shore) is not representative of the state. Weehawken, Hoboken and West NY are up and coming, with a huge influx of young people who work in NYC. Although it would have been ideal to have the race in the city, I think this is bound to be great for F1 in the USA and will hopefully provide penetrance into one of the most important markets for the sport.

Either way, it's great that they are not going back to IMS. Maybe a next step would be some F1 racing at Laguna Seca...I'd love to see how an F1 car navigates the Corkscrew.

If they want to have a GP in the northeast US, Watkins Glen is the obvious answer. The historic aspect alone makes it desirable, but the track is proper and not a street course nor a Tilke design. Yeah, the facilities needs some updating but it probably won't cost any more than it will to host a street GP in Jersey and surely a more viable long term solution.

What a joke.... the only good thing in NJ is the Devils hockey team... road races in big cities are a joke... has anyone ever driven fast or on a motorcycle in a big city? There is so much crap soaked into the road there is never any rip and the slightest rain brings it all to the top and makes it slick as ice.... too much jersey shore... if anything bring it to denver they have a nice new track being built and they ran cart series road races that I've worked and that wasn't a bad event
