Sybil’s Cave is Locked up

While on my Hoboken walk along the Hudson, I saw an odd arch across the street so I wandered over to take a look. It’s a landmark called Sybil’s Cave. The cave is a natural spring and is buried under Stevens Institute of Technology Hill across the street from the skate park. Inside the arch is a metal gate that is, unfortunately, locked. There are some benches outside as restaurants have used it in the past. However, the water has since been found to be undrinkable and there are no plans to reopen the cave itself to the public as of this time.

Kind of stands out a bit.

Next week: I walked by a few different construction sites and damaged areas. That always makes for an interesting look.
