Well After much awaited time, I finally got a chance to update the CJ. Since Manhattan is soo huge, I decided to make 2 parts instead of jamming everything into 1.

This CJ starts early in the morning. 3a.m. to be exact.

It is the dead of night and the late night subway isnt even running. Being seen at this time by someone else is rare.

Larger corporations downtown tend to leave lights on overnight for no apparent reason. Maybe they want people to think they're rich?

Before the sun rolls in, the fog decides to occupy the streets.

While the fog is still out, the commuters arrive at their primary subway station on their way to work.

Dawn quickly arrives and the streets are suddenly once again filled with life.

The sun is out but many are indoors working in there tiny compact cubicles.

Noon arrives and many go on their lunch breaks.

The McDonalds' on Fish Street becomes packed with people. Many order takeout and eat at the park when the sun is out so they can enjoy the beauty.

The park is the only green area for many blocks surrounding the area.

The tight compact city living for some is bad for thier emotion and health.

In the eastern side of Lower Manhattan, homes like these are beyond common.

Being lost is pretty common by most travelers.

Decaying buildings is becoming a real problem for many.

The sun begins to set and people check out work to once again fill the subways.

Streets turn empty and the cycle repeats.

Background

The NJ Transit Midtown Tunnels are two tunnels (one in each direction) that connects New Jersey and New York. They carry Busy commuters(via Amtrak trains) into and out of New York City. The tunnels were opened in 1910 and have been used non stop ever since then. They are HEAVILY congested due to the mass traffic the trains carry. Since 2003, the tunnels have been operating near 100 percent capacity during peak hours (rush hour). Trains ordinarily travel west (to New Jersey) through the north tube and east (to Manhattan) through the south. During the morning rush about 24 trains use the south tube in the busiest hour, and the same through the north tube in the afternoon.

The Access to the Region's Core project to build a set of parallel tunnels began construction in June 2009 to supplement the North River Tunnels, but that project was canceled in October 2010 by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie due the budget being over the "allocated limit". On February 7, 2011, Amtrak announced that it would spend $50-million on design work for a new tunnel project called Gateway, estimated to cost $13.5-billion.

The current tunnels

Special 9/11 Entry

Hello everybody on this day to be remembered in all of history. Today is a different day than usual because today is the 10th aniversery of the attack on the World Trade Center. It still lives in my mind as I lived across the Hudson river at the moment in kindergarten. If you live in america, you probably remember that day too, and if you don't live in america, you probably remember when you first heard about it.

Well lets get to the actual entry

SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001 - A DAY THE UNFORGETTABLE HAPPENED

Atleast after all this, there is hope in the future.

I am already done with the statue of liberty island and almost done with Staten island.
