The photo above was taken from the train to Hoboken. I’ve started to refer to this part of Jersey as a toxic paradise. And I mean it. Despite all the heavy pollution and smog, there’s just something about Jersey that grows on you (in an un-fungus-like way). I already want to go back. Make no mistake, the place is very, very polluted. But there are a great many environmental advocacy groups working for change. Not least of which is Rutgers’ own Environmental Law clinic. Luckily, Environmental Law is an area of interest for me, and while I could have basked in the sunny, crisp air of Eugene or Seattle, why not come to Jersey and really get my hands dirty?
