March 2020: Meet the Millennials

It’s easy to dismiss millennials as the generation that’s given us avocado toast and bottled kombucha. But that’s selling them short. In fact, New Jersey needs to rethink its millennials.

Yes, they are leaving the state, but significant numbers choose to stay. Some we interviewed for this issue appreciate the commuter access to neighboring cities. Others enjoy the proximity to our parks and beaches. Some are happy to be near their families. Others, facing financial pressures, are compelled to move back in with their families.
