Sea Blanket Springsteen.

Sea Blanket Springsteen

The Boss as you've never seen him before: wrapped in a blanket-like cape of sea shells and foam, and completely green. In 2020 he was joined by a similar statue of Clarence Clemons -- and then both disappeared. Bruce returned in September 2023.

Sea Blanket Springsteen is back in the old spot in front of the gas station. I saw it myself; I pass by it every day. I had no idea about your website until I was trying to explain to a friend what this statue was.

It's not there. I drove from Paterson to Princeton, and went around several times until I saw the circle where the statue should have been. What a disappointment.

[Tamara Rivera, 01/18/2022]

Stephen Zorochin's various artistic tributes to Springsteen have disappeared and reappeared with disappointing regularity. They're unofficial sculptures, so they've had difficulty finding permanent spots.

It is something to see if you get gas on your way out of town, but not worth a special trip (and I am a huge Springsteen fan).

[Greg, 07/05/2021]

Springsteen is revered by humans and bivalves alike, yet sculpted tributes to him remain humble.

Went to see it today, but it was not there. Was it moved? Or inside? Looked outside both gas stations on the corner, but no sight of it.
