And moved to New Jersey when he was two and stayed there the next 20 or so years. So he is definitely more New Jerseyan than anything else. "Famous People From" quizzes almost always are based where lived when they were a teenager. Those that don't follow the rule are rare and are usually denoted in the clue. For example Einstein could possibly be added to this quiz, but the clue would mention something about spending last 22 years of his life in Princeton.
