What a view

There’s a certain stigma attached with working in Jersey City, mainly because it’s not Manhattan.  I have to challenge this.  I now have a desk, and have a wonderful view (on the few occasions when I look up from my laptop) of mid-town, dominated by the bold Empire State Building, with its beautiful little sister (the Chrysler Building) off to the right.  The Hudson sweeps northwards up to the George Washington Bridge.  This is something you rarely see from mid-town Manhattan.

I enjoyed seeing the antithesis of Poundstretcher the other day on Broadway.  A shop was having a sale (I think), advertising "Every Item: $10 and up".  Were they indicating that the higher prices are a sign of quality?  Not sure.

Could well be the final game of the World Series tonight, the Red Sox leading 3-0.  Any Yankee fan would tell you that it’s not over ’til the fat lady sings, but I’m confident that they’ll pull it off while they’re still down in St. Louis – either tonight or tomorrow.
