The Garden state, the Crossroads of the Revolution, the Suburban State, The Sopranos State, the Sandy State, the home of the Toxic Avenger: what is New Jersey? In this illustrated presentation, author Richard Veit speaks about his co-authored book, Envisioning New Jersey. This presentation uses numerous images and a series of carefully selected case studies to illustrate tell New Jersey’s story. He concludes, as historian John Cunningham did decades ago, that New Jersey is indeed a mirror for America.
