Pier C Park Closed – but still lit up!

Hoboken energy waste? Pier C Park lit up, but still closed

Several Hoboken411 readers mentioned to me – that while Pier C Park along the Hudson River waterfront has remained closed seven months since Hurricane Sandy – it’s brightly lit up each and every day! Wonder why?

Some might argue that it’s “so boats can see it at night,” but don’t you find that to be a bit excessive to have the whole thing entirely lit?

Blinking beacon lights along the perimeter of the pier should be enough, and would consume a lot less energy, and allow more life to be realized from the lamps on the pier.

But then again, this is Hoboken…
