Liberty State Park

Liberty State Park in Jersey City, and, it is always splendid! On the other side of the Hudson River, this beautiful expanse on the waterfront provides gorgeous views of the NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
After spending a chilly, snowy, wintry Northeast Winter, it is a given that the first hint of warmth and spring blossoms will make you go gaga. So, we joined a parade of New Jerseyites indulging in the liveliness and activeness on the meadows.

In essence, these 300 acres of public spaces have been a significant respite and breathing space in the pandemic. For instance, stealing a few minutes on a sunny lush grassy field, soaking in the warmth, and breathing in fresh air has felt like a triumph. Even if physically distanced, yet being able to visually recognize people around us has been pivotal for us to maintain a healthy mind and socially integrated. In the true sense, we felt connected to nature, yet, amidst a dense cityscape. We have deemed grateful and privileged to have this urban paradise in our backyard for the most part. It reaffirms these open green spaces’ relevance and value, even if lives go on in a congested metropolitan. Thereupon, any city, town, neighborhood, social housing development, the residential complex should be interspersed with these parklands.

Here are a few photographs. If you are nearby, you should detour too.

By and large, this is how we have enjoyed our neighborhood state park –

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!
Admittedly, the dormancy is finally over! Indeed, this is an exceptionally close-to-my-heart post. Professionally working in the Healthcare architecture/Design industry, I have been waiting in latency to blog on our very own design and architecture project. Last year, when my sister-in-law determined to establish her own Dermatology office-based clinic practice for advanced skin and hair care, she approached Vikrant and me to create and design a clinic.
