Pier at 14th Street in Hoboken damaged

Hoboken411 reader sequinn15 sent in these photos of some damage at the 14th Street Pier uptown.

We’ve told you in the past that something isn’t right with this pier. Often on hot summer days – the entire pier smells toxic, and yesterday – the Hoboken Historical Museum held a fireworks viewing BBQ. As this truck drove the porto-johns off today, some of the beams crumbled.

That isn’t supposed to happen, and luckily the pier didn’t collapse yesterday. Maybe people ate too much junk food and over-filled the porto-johns to the brim with solid human waste?
