Pomona is in southern New Jersey close to Atlantic City. Parking here gave us the opportunity to visit the New Jersey coast and, with a little longer drive, Philadelphia. We also had some down time including some time to replace the motor on the windshield roller shade.
Northern New Jersey (Newark/New York City) is not very RV friendly. There are not many campsite/RV park options that will get you close to NYC. Also, since many of the roadways in this area are older, you have to try to plan your driving route to avoid low clearances as well as tunnel and bridge restrictions. But we didn’t want to completely bypass NYC.
