Driftwood TeePee at Maxwell Place

Interesting driftwood sculpture at Maxwell Place Pier

Hoboken411 reader James spotted this “sculpture” that some enterprising people built at the end of the Maxwell Place park uptown. It’s made of driftwood and other debris – and looks like an Indian TeePee.

He said it’s approximately 12 feet tall – and doesn’t look too safe!

My bet is some engineering students at Stevens Institute had a hand in this.

I really like the word teepee.

Not a tee pee. That’s a bonfire. We used to make huge ones just like that in the Great Lakes in the spring, waiting for Memorial Day, and then we’d have a giant conflagration. Then we’d harvest what would float up through the summer and do it again. Best results after huge storms inland — the dead trees would flush out of the woods and float down stream to the lake.

Looks more like they wanted to build a bonfire!
