What do you love most about where you live? What I love most about Jersey City is that I live on the block where I was raised. I love that familiarity.


What would you spend your last $5 on? Probably a carton of eggs and some tofu.


Why did you choose these 3 items? They were the most accessible to me. Not complicated at all… 


Cup of coffee – Dunkin Donuts, $1.99
Loaf of bread – Shop Rite, $0.99
Gasoline – Shell, $4.53/gallon
