the 14th street viaduct


This is the under belly of the 14th Street viaduct. It connects Hoboken (entrance at Willow Street) with Jersey City Heights and Union City, and was built in 1910. Could use a fresh coat of paint! This viaduct was originally built to help ease the schlep of goods and services, and it is still in use today. In fact, from what I can gather, it's part of an ongoing $92 million upgrade and renovation. Here are a few more pics:





At first I saw these bumper stickers and thought - that's strange, I've never seen any propaganda geared towards sprinklers. Then I realized they were for the local sprinkler union - who appear to be Democrats :)



Beyond the viaduct, looking north, there is a ton of real estate for sale. Tons of small businesses, abandoned buildings, and open land are available. There was recently a town hall meetings scheduled to discuss the redevelopment of this area, but it was postponed at the last minute. I'll let you know when it's rescheduled. In the meantime, here are a few lots up for sale:



Some people will look at places like the 14th Street viaduct as the perfect canvas for self expression. Jerry used this opportunity to let us know how to spell his first name:


Just a thought - when thinking about tagging pubic or private property, which last I checked is illigal, it may be a smart idea not to spray paint your full name, INCLUDING YOUR MIDDLE INITIAL. Just a gut feeling there. Jerry might as well tape his drivers license and social security card to the back seat of a cop car:


Carpe Diem is an Irish pub that's tucked under the viaduct. It looks very charming:


Click here for a link to Carpe Diem's official website. Hoboken411 has also written about Carpe Diem over the last year. Click here for a link to his post from last winter. I'll make sure to get in there one of these days and have a beer or two.


Under the viaduct, there is no pavement - it's old cobblestones. Wonder how old they are?


Here's looking east at the entrance to the lower portion of the viaduct:


Directly south of the viaduct is the home of the proposed five screen movie theater that is supposedly being built:


And directly across the street is a sign that says parking and retail is on it's way. Anyone have a date of completion on this one??


And lastly, a little slice of Manhattan, peaking through the horizon:

"JERRY Y NINNETTE" MEANS "JERRY AND NINETTE" IN SPANISH. ITS NOT HIS MIDDLE NAME, ITS THIS WHOLE OTHER LANGUAGE PEOPLE USE

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
