Orange You Glad You Live in Jersey City – Richard Ryals


I’m Richard Ryals. I named my picture Orange You Glad You Live in Jersey City because I’ve lived here all my life, 60 years, and I love the cultural diversity and sense of community here. Journal Square is one of the hubs of daily life in Jersey City and my picture was taken near the Loews Theater in Journal Square during a period when I was documenting beautiful and vibrant Journal Square sunsets in 2020. This area has resisted drastic changes and many of the buildings in the shopping area have been there for at least all my 60 years although the sunsets are different every day. I love to document Jersey City’s urban beauty.
