Pink blossoms by the St. Patrick’s Pro Cathedral at the corner of Washington Street and Central Avenue prove that spring is here and ready to show the vibrant colors to passing viewers.

Let us be happy while we can

Enjoying nature while we can


For we do not know

What the future will bring


Natural disaster

Physical deterioration


Trouble will come

Sooner or later


No time to fight


Enjoy the beauty of nature


Be peaceful with each other


Be happy while we can

Below the Central Avenue sign, another shows directions to Rutgers University and St. Michael’s Center (Hospital).

White cherry blossoms are in full bloom decorating the courtyard of the Newark Museum on Central Avenue and Washington Street.

Nature creates beauty for mankind


Mankind creates beauty

For us all


St. Michael’s Hospital patients can peek though the window to view the cherry blossoms by the fence.

Nice new housing replaces the housing project.  I wonder where the poor residents in the old project would go.  Are they moving to another poor housing project?

Far away, Secret Heart Cathedral appears behind the bare branches of tall trees and the Colonnade, a high rise apartment building opposite Branch Brook Park.

A long abandoned large empty building stands near the highways intersection at the edge of Branch Brook Park.    Art lives only when we pay attention to it.


Humans live peacefully when we are concerned

And pay attention to each other.

We saw white cherry blossoms bloom here and there along the way to Branch Brook Park.  If we cultivated them we will see the beauty of nature.

This is one edge of Branch Brook Park at the intersection of 8thAve and Clifton Ave.

People enjoy a nice day in the park.  If we build it people will come.

I love this pink house.  It is unique and eye catching.

The information above is from a book I wrote on Cherry Blossoms at Branch Brook Park, Newark, New Jersey in April 1994.  There are details, directions and history of Branch Brook Park and the Cherry Blossom Trees.  I wrote this in, “The Eyes of Morris”, a smart dog that belonged to one of our friends.
