After four years of weathering we have revamped the Greetings Mural located at 575 Manilla Ave (#GVM019) by reinterpreting the "Y" with an image of the Bergen Arches. This mural has become a landmark in its own right and we want to shed light onto the lost landmark and the 501(c)3 we founded around the @bergenarches. Bergen Arches Preservation Coalition is a non-profit founded in 2018 with the mission to preserve, educate and to advocate for legal access creating a pedestrian right-of-way connecting to the East Coast Greenway. There is a brand new *http://bergenarches.com* to check out so please head over there and sign up for our email list. Thank you @victorving @lisabeggs @greetingstour for the remarkable project they brought to Jersey City back in 2014, and most importantly to David Ai Wang who brought this Y to life in 2019.
