The headline to this article is

Governor Christie's brother invested in houses near new PATH station in Harrison
 Three houses were purchased for around 150K and sold for around 450K. The investment is small potatoes compared to this:
[Christie's brother's] firm serves as a construction manager at the World Trade Center site...
The WTC site is owned by the Port Authority.

And how about this:

As chairman of the bi-state agency [Port Authority], Samson voted to approve the Harrison station overhaul, months after a client of his law firm proposed converting a nearby warehouse into luxury apartments.
For the uninitiated, the PATH is a light rail/subway that has run between NJ and NYC under the Hudson River for over 100 years.  PATH stands for Port Authority Trans Hudson.  Yes, it is owned by the Port Authority.  The station was established long ago when Harrison was a thriving factory hub, no doubt transporting the many needed factory workers from nearby towns.  When manufacturing left NJ, the area was left desolate and abandoned. For decades it has served as a park-and-ride for commuters to NYC with a couple of the buildings used as warehouses. The Red Bull Arena opened near the PATH station in 2010.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
