When Nitin Kumar was searching in Manhattan and Jersey City, N.J., for a new condominium for himself, his wife and their infant daughter, he had one major requirement: he wanted the commute to be what he termed "a non-issue." Kumar, 33, found that -- and much more -- at Trump Plaza Residences Jersey City where the walk to the PATH Exchange Place station is two to three minutes and the ride to the World Trade Center stop is all of 45 seconds. Even the commute to Midtown, where his wife, Lakshmi, 30, works, is easier than from downtown Manhattan: a five-minute walk to the PATH Grove Street Station and a 15-minute ride to 33rd Street.

Limited Inventory Remaining at Chic Jersey City Condominium
Effie Speigler thinks of himself as a man who acts from the gut, while his mother describes him as a man who likes to plan things out. Which is not to say that these two approaches are contradictory --- at least when it comes to living accommodations. Speigler, 36, always knew he wanted the light, space and feel that come with loft living. So when he encountered CANCOlofts condominiums in Jersey City, N.J., he knew it was where he wanted to live, especially given the fact that his recent marriage to Machell Espejo-Speigler, 33, meant the couple would need more room.
"Once we found CANCO, we didn't need to look anywhere else," he said.

Summer offers a perfect opportunity to enjoy a bounty of delicious, fresh fruits. Like other plant foods, fruits are packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidant compounds known as phytochemicals.
These health-promoting agents help protect plants from environmental hazards, including insects, fungi and ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Although the human body isn't capable of producing many of the natural compounds found in plants, we can enjoy their protective benefits by consuming a variety of fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains.

About 1.3 percent fewer Americans are expected to fly this summer than last summer, according to the Air Transport Association. Which may be good news for the environment, since a single transatlantic flight for a family of four creates more carbon emissions than that family will generate domestically for an entire year.
