Here’s a photo I posted 8 years ago of the northeast side of Jersey City as it looked in the early 1980s.  The key landmark here should be the two Jersey side ventilators for the Holland Tunnel. 

Here the ventilators show at the extreme edge to the left of the photo below.  Seeing this old infrastructure begs the question “what’s there now?”

The rest of these photos I took yesterday, after I had decided to walk from the ferry to midtown along the ever changing western edge of Manhattan.  One goal was to see Jaume Plensa’s 80′ tall sculpture there called “Water’s Soul.”  It’s been there for a few weeks already.  I’d rename it “sixth boro soul” of course.

If you want to read a statement about the sculpture from the Richard Gray Galley, click here.

In the photo below, you can see the horizontal sections fitted together to make the work.

All photos, WVD, who thinks she’s telling us to think about what was here before.  Here are more of those sixth boro fifth dimension posts.   Here‘s more harbor art.
