Demolition begins on ‘Shorehenge’ in Highlands

A controversial monument to Superstorm Sandy survivors is in the process of being demolished.



The monument, dubbed "Shorehenge" because of its resemblance to Stonehenge, was being broken down into pieces Tuesday after residents complained about the large concrete structure near the beach.



Many residents told borough officials they thought the structure was an eyesore and blocked their views of the bay. They asked for it to be taken down.



Other residents argued that the monument violated environmental codes.



Borough officials did not say how much the demolition will cost.
