A Matter of Perspective, or Zoom

A local company, in an apparent attempt to attract quality staff to its location, has gone a bit too far in boasting about Matawan. Above is their photograph of how close Matawan is to Manhattan.  Really? They have enhanced the perspective to bring the city closer. In fact, we're over twenty miles from the Big Apple as the crow flies, and more like an hour by car or an hour and a half by train -- each way. And you won't be popping over to the city to unwind during your breaks or out to our fine beach to dive into the surf and walk a boardwalk after work. Local beaches are for boating and fishing but not for swimming.

Matawan is a great place to live and work. I just wouldn't want people thinking it's as close to Manhattan as Hoboken, or as hopping as a Jersey Shore beach town in summer.
