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 …

Finally, I am back to posting in this Miradii Space! Admittedly, it has been a long time away. My last post was on our design project for my sister-in-law's Dermatology office-based clinic in Mumbai. And then, I just felt that if I needed the motivation to create more on Miradii, it would have to be another one on Design. So, I waited for something close to my heart to be done. And it is the time!
