This week I’m teaching Adobe Flex class to a group of Java developers of a Wall Street company. After 9/11 many organizations moved from Manhattan across the Hudson river to Jersey City, NJ.
Jersey City is a high crime city, but now the narrow area of 2-3 blocks from the river has been rebuilt, with new office and apartment buildings and with a simple train commute from Manhattan.
I took this photo shot right in the classroom. How do you like this view from a student’ desk? This is not a wallpaper, but a view of the downtown Manhattan. You’d have to be a big shot to get an office with such a view. The other option is to be a student.
