Missing it

Posted on Monday, August 16, 2010 in Life

Tonight, I miss Jersey City. I miss the waterfront down by Exchange Place and the lights of Manhattan across the Hudson.  I miss the sound of an approaching PATH train and even that peculiar smell of the train platform at Grove St. I miss the food at Shadman and the pancakes at the Brownstone Diner. I miss full service gas stations. I miss PJ’s Deli on Logan Avenue. I miss liquor stores that deliver. I yearn for the shopping at Newport Center Mall. I can see so clearly in my head the curve of the road as you exit the Holland Tunnel. I miss driving down the Sip Avenue hill towards home.

Tonight, I miss the life I left behind there in Jersey City.
