So yesterday i went to new places in the NJ Gold Coast and Ironbound. I didn't realize Weehawken & Union City were so huge , yikes. The Ironbound seems to be a very diverse part of Newark each new part of it surprises me. I walked down Bergenline avenue and over to various other roads......in Weehawken just a few streets and down into Lincoln Harbor and a few shots of Hoboken.....I also went to Midtown before i went to Weehawken & UC.

We Start out with Secaucus JCT

On your travels Nex, on the border of Union City and Weehawken on Park Ave. there's a place called La Cremas...a new ice cream shop that opened up recently where they have homemade ice cream thats fantastic. Give it a whirl if you happen to be near it Its on the corner of a luxury apartment building on the ground floor across the street from Clifton Terrace. I had the ice cream there recently and its so good!

A Kodak Digital Camera & a Sony HD Camera , although i should have gotten a regular Camera , the HD camera is hard to hold......when the trains blow there horns i can't hold it properly....The Ironbound , just like Forest Hills will always be nice.
