Inside Jersey City’s unique, vibrant SMUSH Gallery, a ‘neighborhood oddity’

“Lots of locals eventually find their way in, even if it’s brief. Something finally gets them to walk through the door. A lot of times it’s the odd thing you pass while you take your kids to school or on the way to the train. ‘What the hell is in the window of this place now?’ It’s a Pee-wee Herman Doll. It’s a TV set. It’s a person. Things are always changing based on what’s happening in the space. You will come in at some point. It’s unavoidable.”
