Broad & Jersey, Elizabeth
Many of us Jerseyans look at this with a mixture of distaste & pride.
Distaste because it really is crappy, & this corner was once a pretty classy city intersection. Pride because we don't mind saying the scene is well within our zone of familiarity, we could walk right into it without anxiety. & it still is in its way a great city intersection.

Downtown Elizabeth definitely has crappy stores - although in 2005 I found some great deals on Chuck Taylors for Little Contrarian and some cheap toys there - but at least the place is always busy with shoppers.Post a Comment
