A panel on the façade of the Newport Tower high-rise — directly above a Jersey City light rail station — cracked yesterday and authorities cordoned off the area as a precaution, a witness said.

The damaged panel was roughly 60 to 70 feet above the Newport station of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail system, said Joe Shine, a freelance photographer for The Jersey Journal.
