Sure, lots of great work on NJ.

The most significant struggle over race, housing and suburbia in New Jersey took place in Mount Laurel. Two good texts:  https://www.amazon.com/Our-Town-Race-Housing-Suburbia/dp/0813524563   https://www.amazon.com/Climbing-Mount-Laurel-Struggle-Affordable/dp/0691157294/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=mount+laurel&qid=1557673572&s=books&sr=1-2 

Liz Cohen's Consumers' Republic has a lot of amazing material on her hometown of Newark and the surrounding suburbs in northern NJ.  https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/29448/a-consumers-republic-by-lizabeth-cohen/9780375707377/ 

Howard Gillette's book on Camden is terrific:  http://www.upenn.edu/pennpress/book/14180.html 

My colleague Alison Isenberg, meanwhile, is part of a fantastic project tracking changes in Trenton:  https://www.thetrentonproject.com/ 

And @BryantSimon's Boardwalk of Dreams -- on Atlantic City -- is an absolute must-read.  https://www.amazon.com/Boardwalk-Dreams-Atlantic-Urban-America/dp/0195308093
