jersey city

Even on a dank grey afternoon, Jersey City had considerable allure - one emerges up this super-modern escalator onto the banks of the Hudson, staring across at Manhattan (a view that I thought unbearably cruel when they brought us there on the Rutgers Bus Tour of New Jersey for New Faculty, as though taunting us with the fact that NJ looked at NYC - but wasn't actually There).  Maybe the weather - the dankness, the greyness - accounts for my migraine, though, which was already settling uncomfortably into place, and which is making it too uncomfortable for me to write more ... except to say that today, I truly understood the attractions of the place.
