Interesting images from times past are available in the Pier Cam Archive. The last twenty-four hours of images are available in the Latest Archive. Hoboken cam images and daily videos for any day this year can be found on the Weather Underground. Time-lapse videos of the Pier Cam for the last 24 hours as well as for the last month and year can be found on Lookr.com.
The Pier Cam Movie (11.5 MB) was built using 320 x 240 images taken during daylight hours on 2000-12-01 at 15-second intervals; the movie frame rate corresponds to 7 1/2 minutes of pier time per second. You may also like the Sunrise Movie (1.5 MB).
The pier cam has been online and overlooking Pier A since June, 2000, making it one of the longest running webcams on the internet. It will continue to function as long as the Axis 2100 hardware keeps working; or, until the very nice company currently providing a home for it decides to move.
The cam was 93 feet high from June 2000 until November 2006, when it got tired of the view. From November 2006 until July 2010, the cam was 25 feet high; it is now about 40 feet above sea level at 2 Hudson Place in Hoboken, NJ. The image is updated every 10 minutes. The time stamp on the image is EST (UTC minus 5 hours) in winter months and EDT (UTC minus 4 hours) otherwise.
