Note: NO elevator access until repairs have been completed!
Its impact on the New Jersey Maritime Museum
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we want to thank our members, visitors and friends for their concerns following this horrific event and its impact on the New Jersey Maritime Museum. Due to the loss of power, internet access and water, we have not been able to respond to many of the calls, e-mails and texts we received from so many of you. Three of us, myself, Jim Vogel and Bob Yates, weathered this storm and watched as the flood waters came within inches of the museum's first floor. We're happy to announce that there was NO damage to either the museum or its contents. Although the elevator, garages, workshop and contents were destroyed, we consider ourselves lucky, compared to many of our fellow Islanders; many of whom lost far more and are courageously working to salvage what remains of their businesses and homes. Upon restoration of power, assessment of losses for insurance purposes, and clean-up of the damage, we plan to reopen as soon as we possibly can. Thank you for your concern and your support during this challenging time!
