Jersey City is one of the most underappreciated cities in the United Sates, existing in the literal shadow of lower Manhattan. Most eyes usually overlook its rising waterfront skyline, favoring the other side of the Hudson River, unaware of the quickly advancing prospects of New Jersey's second most populous city. However, that is beginning to change as Jersey City has been undergoing a dramatic revitalization in recent years, headlined by the construction of many impressive towers.

I watched this flurry of construction from Manhattan for quite some time and wanted to capture the spirit of New York's neighbor-city on its way to making a name for itself. In late 2015, construction topped out at 713 feet on "URL Harborside 1," the centered building in this photo, making it New Jersey's tallest residential tower. Perfectly placed within the Jersey City skyline, it made the ideal subject.

After waiting a few months for the lighting conditions to be optimal, a beautiful early-Spring day in 2016 presented the perfect opportunity. I worked to capture this VAST photo, one of the highest resolution photos of Jersey City ever taken, amid the sights, sounds, and smells of spring, a time that represents rebirth, growth, and opportunity. I can think of no better time of year to represent Jersey City.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
