It is a boring and disappointingly unrepresentative list. I think the problem is TONY is geared to it's NYC audience, and the author selected venues near the PATH (with the exception of LSP, although I suppose you can take the ferry there from Manhattan). Remember, many NY'ers don't have cars (none of my friends do), so even getting to DTJC is a two-fare trip. People ask me about getting to JC for something I'm going to and invite them to come along, and as soon as I mention the light rail (now we are talking 3 fares), buses (3 fares, plus PABT is too ghetto), and jitneys (are they safe?) I've lost them. Which is a shame, because kayaking in the Reservoir is great; strolling through Bayside Cemetery is awesome; BBQ at Legal Beans on Newark Avenue can't be beat.

Would that our elected officials and professional planners listen (doubtful, I've been writing to them on this topic for 8 years) but if we want folks from outside of JC to come and enjoy more of what the city has to offer (OK, not everyone on this board will, but I bet the business will be appreciated) JC's mass transit has to be better integrated into the regional network.

Exactly.

It's likely put together by someone that is just doing a search on Yelp. It's also a very subjective list. I happen to like Zeppelin Hall but others don't share this feeling. My feelings on PacFlea are well known. But is it possible that there are others that are just not into the scene. Whatever...

Man, I expect better of TimeOut.

That reads like an entirely sponsored list.
