Newport Shore North Tower

This will likely be the last update of Newport's Shore Club since Newport's rent-a-cops sent us away claiming the street was private property and photography was prohibited. The nuances of private, public, and semi-public property are no doubt lost on minimum wage GED holders in uniforms, and arguing really isn't worth our aggravation considering the multitude of other interesting projects freely accessible in downtown Jersey City. Their sudden interest in our photography might be evident in the below photograph of the north tower-- bottom right is the base of the 31 story Aqua going in due East of the Shore Club:
