Along the Hudson River In Jersey City, N.J.

By Anthony Buccino

In the beginning, there was Harborside, Copyright © Anthony BuccinoIt'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.

Voices on the bus, train, subway, sidewalk and in my head by Anthony Buccino

Voices on the Bus train, subway, sidewalk and in my head

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.
