In NY it depends on the age and maturity of the child. I do not know about NJ for sure. There is no precise age, except it is generally thought a child under 8 years old cannot stay home alone. It is generally up to the parents, who probably know best about the child's maturity, responsibility level, and whether the child would know what to do in an emergency.

ask you're parents, it's pretty much their decision.
