TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - The threat of minor coastal flooding continues in New Jersey, especially along the south coast, as a slow-moving nor'easter lingers.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect for the entire Jersey shore until 6 p.m. Saturday.

Heavy rain has not been much of a problem. However, onshore winds may keep back bays from draining and high surf can cause beach erosion.

Forecasters are predicting the possibility of widespread poor drainage and roadway flooding during high tide Friday and Saturday afternoon.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
