Newport NJ >> A troubling change…

Postby RichCoffey » Fri Sep 08, 2017 5:48 pm

A stroll along along the waterfront walkway revealed a troubling change. The signs that detailed the waterfront history have been replaced by real estate adverts. Eeech - What a shame!

Further Details and some nice shots of the Hoboken Terminal

It's all about the Benjamins.
Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?

Add to that, it will be the Taxpayers who will foot the bill to pay to fix those places when the next storm surge hits. Should just leave it the way it is! We keep loosing our Rail History!
