from Monmouth County, New Jersey

I live in Monmouth County, NJ, which was hit pretty damn hard by Sandy. The train line that has taken me to work in NYC for the past 8 years has been wrecked by flooding and is down indefinitely. 

A train commute which normally takes me approximately 3 hours/day has been replaced by an epic quest (car to bus to ferry then about 1 mile of walking) totaling 5 hours/day. It is just another mess in a series of messes brought on by Sandy. 

I posted this one on the last leg while riding on the Statue of Liberty ferry, which has been providing courtesy transportation of sad, tired, cold commuters from Jersey City, NJ to Battery Park, NY. This one was hung on the Ladies' Room wall, where I imagine many women have let a tear or two slip.

dear New Jersey: we are so grateful for that Statue of Liberty ferry! and you! thank you for this exhibition. we're so happy you are safe.
