No summer fun at Pier A Park
Dead fountain means no kiddie fun at Pier A Park in Hoboken
What a summer downer!
Pretty much every summer season, the fun water fountain at Pier A Park downtown is in full swing.
Jovial kids splashing around, cooling off during the hot, humid days that are typical in the Mile Square. Even local bums get to “freshen up,” much to the delight of residents and visitors.
But summer of 2015 is a total bust!
The entire system is not just defunct – it’s non-existent! All the pipes are now gone. There were plastic bags and other garbage piled up nearby as evidence of the void.
Oh well. Perhaps it doesn’t matter if this whole thing just sinks into the Hudson and they can “rebuild” something else. Maybe it’s time to remove this from city control and hand it over to a private entity (with competence?)
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
