Rust Never Sleeps: The Horror of Sharp Park Pier

A local photographer captures the deterioration of the Sharp Park Tier.

I shot this at low tide on September 29. I don't know what the metal cladding was designed for, but if it was safety-related, there may be a problem.

i was told years ago by a teacher @ Oceana that the pier is completely flawed in design. Its sad b/c our pier and palmetto have so much potential!

I'm going to make some calls about this on Monday. Very interesting.

Good idea, Maria. Will do! Their annual fundraiser should be coming up, actually.
