Along the Hudson River In Jersey City, N.J.
By Anthony Buccino
It's about more than the shore, more than the seagulls, ducks and geese that visit; about more than the people who leave their bustling offices and saunter outside along the ever-evolving shoreline of the Hudson River at Harborside and Exchange Place in Jersey City, New Jersey.
It's as much about the sounds of the sea and what those visitors see as it is about the vista across the water and along the shoreline in the reborn era of Jersey City, New Jersey at the turn of the century.
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 or in print, 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.

... essays appear in the second edition of:
Poems written along the Hudson River Walkway near Harborside, Exchange Place, Grundy Pier, the Goldman Sachs can of Coke, and the Colgate clock in Jersey City, N.J. In these lines, you can see the pigeons running, hear seagulls squawking, helicopters buzzing overhead and see buildings reaching for the sky.
Commuting daily on the bus, train, subway or PATH, one settles into a routine of familiar seating and faces. You can stare out the window listening to your own music, or read a book, or write poems about the experience. This is the latter. Working class verse and tales, musings and random observations about commuting in Northern New Jersey.
