A lot of folks have wondered what this strange thing is out in Newark Bay. We knew that photographer Timothy Matus shot a beautiful picture of it, but we didn’t know what it was until an engineer who was born and raised in Bayonne gave us the skinny. Apparently, it’s a contraption that was used by the Electro-Dynamic Company. Sand was processed and stored in the container and delivered to the company facility, where it was used to form molds to cast housings for motors on navy ships and subs. Who knew?
