What is this object in the Hudson?

Hoboken residents fear the worst with Hudson River object

Hoboken411 receives tons of emails about objects like this off the Mile Square coast each year.

Most of the time, they presume it’s some kind of dead whale – or other sea creature.

But do you know what it is?

It appears to be a floating rubber fender. Some tour boats/ dinner boats use these to keep from getting hung up on the pier or causing damage. It probably broke loose during the recent storms.

Ahhh. That makes sense. I saw it floating in the dark the other night. Thanks for clearing that up!
