I did think of that afterwards and rechecked and all the settings were "normal". Just to explain, I was roughly 5 blocks from the destination in Manhattan so the routing via NJ would have been several miles in each direction. I don't think I could have figured out a way of changing the settings to get that route had I for some reason actually wanted it to be that way. Thanks for mentioning the settings, though.
