When my ship comes in, I'll be at the airport ...
By Anthony Buccino
Sometimes I look up from my work and see someone staring out the window at a passing ship, or a sailboat, or icebergs that pass by in the winter thaw on the Hudson River.
But it's the summer afternoons when the cruise ship passes and we take a moment to daydream about the pool atop that ship and the spiral sliding board we can see so plainly from our air-conditioned office in Jersey City.

Jersey City Snapshots
More than 200 color snapshots of Jersey City, New Jersey, from Pavonia/Newport to Paulus Hook, from Grundy Park to Grove Street, along the Hudson River from the Colgate clock to Exchange Place, Harborside and through neighborhoods that have no names.
Color photos are ideal for viewing on Kindle Fire, and bring you up close to New Jersey's second-largest city, its building boom and its broken ground.
Writer/photographer, who worked and walked these streets for nearly ten years, leaves words behind and speaks through the camera lens and we see the commonplace wildlife, the glimmering structures and the grandeur of the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center and the memorials erected in Jersey City.
This collection is ideal for fans of Jersey City, and folks who've always wanted to visit.
