NFT New York Jersey City

Jersey City
Jersey City has a siren song that lures dissatisfied New Yorkers to its mall-studded shores. First it came for the artists, then for our young families and yuppies. Next it came for our offices and suburbanites. Maybe you should start hanging out at Marco and Pepe’s right now and be done with it. White Mana’s is a bona fide landmark, after all, and we love Morgan’s octopus platter, Ibby’s falafel, Fatburger’s L.A. grease...

The Irish Hunger Memorial
With the financial foundation of Wall Street crumbling one mile away, we can feel the aftershocks here at the NFT office in Chinatown. Literally. Or maybe that's just the construction next door. Anyway, in these difficult times we all need a place to escape and contemplate our existence as human beings stuck on the capitalist treadmill. What better place to reflect than a memorial that recognizes life could be worse--The Irish Hunger Memorial. This solemn space is dedicated to the 1.5 million Irish people who died from starvation in the 1800s and to all the peoples of the world who currently suffer from famine. As you sit in this peaceful space of tall meadow-grass and Irish stones, pray (to whatever god you believe in) that someday it won't be renamed the New York Hunger Memorial. The way this economy is behaving, you better start stocking up on food.
