Urban Exploration

Jersey City is full of nooks and crannies of goodness. We've been exploring new streets, neighborhoods, shops, and parks all over town recently. This weekend, we finally got to the elusive Bergen Arches, an abandoned railroad line that runs from downtown JC to Tonnele circle, parallel to Rt. 139, some 85 ft. below the above cross streets and highways. It's now 30 years overgrown, and while it feels a world away from the circus of NJ's highways, it's still an urban retreat, and probably the best gallery of graffiti I've ever seen. Looking forward to seeing it in summer or fall bloom.
