An upper-middle-class Northern New Jersey town of about 55,000 in Passaic County about 20 miles outside of New York City.
Lacking in any sort of downtown so "Club Preakness" (Preakness shopping center) is the place to be.
Full of Jews, Asians, and endless Catholics who forget that Protestants exist.
The relationship between CSI's Catherine Willows and Warrick Brown
example of the yobling relationship:
Warrick: Hey Catherine.
Warrick: Can we talk?... About this?
(He lifts his hand up with the wedding ring)
Warrick: You know what happened to Nick. It just got me thinkin'. Life is so short, you know. It's almost... so much shorter than we wanna have to believe.
Catherine: Live for the day.
Warrick: Exactly. I ah... I went ahead and asked this young lady I've been seeing, Tina, to marry me.
Catherine: You know that I'm happy for you?
Warrick: Well, it also feels like you're not so happy for me.
Catherine: Warrick... you know the thing that makes a fantasy great is the possibility that it might come true. And when you lose that possibility, it just kinda...sucks.
