what’s up, dock?

The dock at the Bronx Riverside Park is designed to withstand the ebb and flow of the tides.

This part of the river is estuarian, meaning it’s part of the tidal plain.

When the water comes in, the dock floats up on the pilings.

When the tide goes out, the dock floats back down to low water.

But when Hurricane Sandy blows through...

The dock gets hung up on top of the pilings. Hm.

Anybody got a big forklift?
