Paterson and the Passaic
“ . . . I was three thousand two hundred miles from my aunt’s house in Paterson, New Jersey” i
“Paterson is quite a few miles from Times Square. Can you picture me walking those last miles through
the Lincoln Tunnel or over the Washington Bridge and into New Jersey?” ii
What a drag.
Zooming through New Jersey
Through the tunnel and into New Jersey and on the road . . .
Pushing through New Jersey to Paterson
White signs in New Jersey
Bull Lee: a summons-server in Newark iii
Over the river from New Jersey . . .
Dean and Inez Newark married
The long, long skies over New Jersey . . . make me weep
