Jersey City

Jersey City across the Hudson

Jersey City Across the Hudson

New York City. This is a view across the Hudson River to office buildings in Jersey City that have sprung up as Manhattan pricing has risen. I’m standing in Rockefeller Park at the west end of Chambers Street, the northern boundary of a series of spectacular parks that together form a strip of commercial development and public space that cradles the World Trade Center site. The cost and exclusivity of the office space behind me gave rise to the office space in front of me, across the river. I’m sure the view from across the river is as good or better.
