No explosives or huge wrecking balls will be used

They haven't used them at any of the other 643 projects around town, so why would you expect them here?

well, you would be wrong.    The correct nautical term is listing...   and it is not stuck in the mud either, at least not as it was before.   you see, on the night of October 29, 2012, the Ling actually popped out of the mudhole it was in for the previous 39 years when the river crested....   when the river went back down the boat did not settle back in the depression it had been in, so it took on a 4 degree list to port.     that is where it sits today...

No explosives or huge wrecking balls will be used; 150 River Street and other buildings will be taken down with large mechanical claws, and pulverized to be used as fill to raise site 3 feet.

That doesn't make sense. I'll stick with leaning, as anyone can see from the photos I took 2 years apart; same lean as before:

But I love your idea of filing a property maintenance citation against the Borgs, though I don't think the city will do that on its own; are you ready to go to the Building Department and file a complaint????

Forget about listing and leaning; Old Homer has come up with a solution to the Ling.
If a Hackensack property owner stores a wrecked/ non functioning vehicle on his or her property, the property owner would be in violation of the City’s Property Maintenance Code and if the violation were not corrected in a given amount of time, the property owner would be brought into court. (You can see where this is going).
In the case of the Ling, the property owner should be responsible for the removal of this non functioning derelict submarine since the property owner was responsible for bringing the submarine onto their property.
All the City has to do is have a property maintenance inspector issue a notice of violation and if the submarine is not removed in a reasonable period of time, the matter be brought to court for adjudication.
This could be the start of a new direction for maritime law.

It's actually stuck in the mud, and has been since 2016, so it's leaning, not listing.

"List" and "lean" have similar meanings, but when a ship is involved, it's "listing", irrespective of whether it's in water, mud or ping-pong balls.

Conversely, have you ever heard of someone listing against a wall?

Or you can just wait until one of those business jets slams into the hospital, though, I hope, not through the window where you have your camera set up.
