Jersey City: Discover the Stunning Streetscape & Art Culture

Jersey city and its Stunning Streetscape and Thriving Art Culture

As for me, Jersey City is where home is. Then again, I call it my own city, across the Hudson River from NYC. A few years ago, someone visiting New York city asked me why I like living in these tiny, cramped apartments. Despite the fact that it is not entirely comfortable for daily lives? Even though we sometimes see dirt and muck on pavements, where the subway stops are dim, dingy, and cold, a stench is climbing out the stairs leading to a concrete cityscape. Besides, walking in crowds is no less cumbersome than predicting the future. 
But, for the most part, I think I have figured it out. For me, it is the life behind a place, the pulse, the vibe, almost like living to enjoy what crosses the path and find beauty in it. Particularly, it is the process of the mortals who contrive, of inhabitants who build spaces, a mixture of shadow, geometry, shapes, and tangled mess of dreams. Moreover,  finding why trees accompany to make streets, why lights glitter to make it appear like stars dropping. And why places with perfume and music make for an inviting place!  

Few things that caught the eye …

We were on Little Island recently ~ A new sculptural open park island floating in the Hudson River off Manhattan. One hundred thirty-two concrete piles supporting “tulips” in unique shapes arise out of the river, a spectacular undulating phenomenon for viewers from shore. This new cluster of tiny islands is a recent project designed by the London-based Heatherwick studio. I posted about the Vessel in this New Year’s post, which is another significant project designed by their studio in New York City.
