Sinatra Drive Pier continues to sink

As discussed in Wednesdays Council Meeting, here’s the current state of the crumbling pier on Sinatra Drive.

10/16/06:
This morning, a little after 1:00am, it was reported that the pier in which the Steven Institute uses as a parking lot began collapsing.

One car was confirmed in the water, and three or four others teetering on the edge.

NY State Police harbor patrol has just arrived on scene, and many Hoboken Fire and Police units responded as well. They’re currently waiting for a Stevens Tech engineer to arrive on the scene to determine the integrity of the pier and whether further damage may occur. I do find it ironic that a property owned by some of the worlds best engineers had structural issues. But thankfully no one got hurt.
