Manhattan comes to terms with Jersey City

Jersey City used to be good for three things: it was a good place to park the car before getting on the ferry to New York, it served as the butt of many a poor joke by Manhattanites, and offered a fantastic view of the skyline across the Hudson. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre destroyed the latter, at least for the time being. Though not the prettiest buildings to many, for 25 years the twin towers dominated and defined Manhattan. They were usually the first buildings you would see as you neared the island, and also served as a useful reference point if you got lost when walking downtown.


       
Manhattan: it will never be the same

The jokes are largely gone as well, though they will return. Jersey City, and New Jersey as a whole, has become a temporary refuge from the destruction for several of the larger financial institutions.
