Photos/Video: Bermuda Triangle Plaque


The city announced “dramatic improvements” to the Albuoy’s Point area, including officially marking a spot as the northern tip of the Bermuda Triangle; a bronze plaque has been placed on the ground next to a QR code which, when scanned, will display an informative video.

Speaking at the unveiling last night, Councilor John Harvey said, “Today, on behalf of the Mayor and City Council, I am delighted to announce that the City of Hamilton has completed some truly spectacular improvements here in the Albuoy’s Point area…as you can see.

“Upgrades included improved seating and shade, re-grassing the entire area, lighting trees and revitalizing the pedestrian areas and waterfront.

“In addition, the waterside steps leading to the lower quay have been widened to improve access for sailors and the power supply to the area has been improved, which will expand the opportunities for the park as a dynamic event space.

“The Jervis Bay Memorial has also been moved to a better, prominent location in the park. The Memorial honors the memory of the men of HMS Jervis Bay who gave their lives in battle against a German raider in the North Atlantic on November 5, 1940, to protect the 37 ships in their charge.

“We also moved – and fabricated a new plinth for – Bill Ming’s sculpture, Against da Tide, which previously occupied the sidewalk at the entrance to the former Bank of Bermuda building on Front Street. HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited commissioned Against da Tide as a public art sculpture featuring a timeless and contemporary design with historical reference to Bermuda and its people. Mr. Ming saw the craft not only as a transport vessel but also as a metaphor for survival.

“I would like to thank the Park Service staff members who worked exceptionally hard to bring this project to fruition.

“Today I’m excited to talk about the next phase of this project. You may have noticed that the park walkway is triangular in shape. This design alludes to what I’m about to unveil here today. today…

“We’ve all heard the legend of the Bermuda Triangle – of missing planes, empty ships and sailors never to be seen again…for more than half a century, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has fascinated the world .

“The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is an area in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of planes and ships are believed to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The three “points of the triangle are Miami; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and, of course, Bermuda.

“And whether the Bermuda Triangle is a fabricated mystery or a paranormal force at work, there’s no doubt that it’s a fascinating subject…and it’s also often one of the things we’re associated with, after maybe Bermuda shorts!

“This led to our announcement today, the City of Hamilton will officially mark this location here at Albuoy’s Point as the northern point of the Bermuda Triangle.

“We have placed a bronze plaque in the ground officially marking this location, to create a point of interest in the park and an additional tourist attraction.

“It’s also an educational opportunity. You will see that next to this plate we have installed a QR Code panel. This is similar to the QR codes we installed along Freedom Square last year. Simply scan your phone or device over the code and an informative video appears about the Bermuda Triangle – voiced by our own town crier Ed Christopher.

“This Albuoy’s Point project is one of three major infrastructure projects the City has undertaken recently – the other two being the complete refurbishment of Pier 6 and the redesign of Washington Lane.

“At the City of Hamilton, we are constantly striving to find new ways to add to the vibrancy of the city, to continue to attract visitors and to provide attractive and engaging spaces for our visitors and residents.
