Jersey City Brownstone

Posted by Laurie (New Jersey, United States) on 5 September 2008 in Architecture and Portfolio.

First I should probably mention that I know this is a bit strange looking and that is because I shot it with a fisheye lens. What a fun and tricky lens to use.

This is one of the wonderful buildings in Jersey City that has been part of the rejuvenation of this renaissance city. I just love the windows and the railings on this building. It is a nice combo of old world charm and the modern city. Jersey City is a more affordable alternative to NYC living. Many young professionals are making the move here, and not just from NYC but also from the Suburbs for the easy commute into NYC.

My husband has worked in and around Jersey City many times over the years and he has seen the city change so much during this transformation. There is still much to be done but it is definitely wonderful to see the continuing progress.
