Commemorative Signs to be posted by community volunteers. Information Session at North Hudson Water Treatment Plant.
Starts with an Information Session at the North Hudson Sewage Authority Plant. Meet at 1pm at the North Hudson Plant at 1600 Adams St for an informative talk on what happened during Sandy and how the plant fared and quickly recovered from the storm.
After the briefing we will take a walk. Local designer Ray Guzman has designed a small “Sandy Happened Here” sign, and Alan Blumberg of Stevens Institute of Technology has provided a list of key and visible locations where th Hudson River came in AND UP! Links on the sign point people to the NJDEP project page and this Facebook page. “Good Things Happen When Enough Good People Get Involved.” Any signs not posted on Saturday will be available at the Historical Museum for pick up on Sunday. Post your own! It is important that we as a community not forget what happened, and that we work together in the future to help make sure we don’t suffer like that again. Starts 1pm at 1600 Adams. If you cannot join but want us to save a sign for you to post in a place important to you please let us know.
Sunday 29 October – Sandy Open House at the Historical Museum
From the Mayor:
“The City of Hoboken and the Hoboken Historical Museum invite residents and visitors to an open-house event to come together as a community to reflect on Superstorm Sandy and the 5-year anniversary. The event will take place on Sunday, October 29th from 2pm to 5pm at the Hoboken Historical Museum, located at 1301 Hudson Street.
“Residents and visitors are invited to view Sandy-related materials, sign the museum’s 5-year anniversary reflection book, and enjoy hot beverages and desserts together. The Turquoise Cup, a pottery craft studio from the Monroe Center that recently fully reopened after being hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy, will also be providing children and adults with the opportunity to create their own pottery artwork.
