Whenever I walk around Paterson I see how many opportunities there are for easy (and inexpensive) improvements to blighted areas. A case in point is this area in the first photo, which is directly next to the city’s train station. Right now it’s a somewhat intimidating area for visitors. However, the overhead doors could easily be painted by a local artist. In New York City, artists do just that, as seen in my next three pictures if you swipe over. In Paterson, the area is technically @njtransit
property, but seeing as how they don’t use it at all and probably never will again, it would seem feasible. The artist would gain recognition, the area would look better and feel safer, and it would draw in people who want to take pictures of the art.
