Day 5 – Newark, NJ
We passed by this mural after leaving Jersey City, along our route towards Cranford, New Jersey. For us, it was an encapsulation of the beauty of America, and the promise of opportunity that it is to so many people. We spent the night before with Erich Sekel, talking about the beautiful, immigrant communities that populate much of Jersey City. After a night discussing the great lessons that a community like Jersey City could offer the rest of the country, we could not pass up a photo-op like this!
From Cranford, we are headed to Highland Park, New Jersey. We’ll update further when we get there!
