Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm with 155-mph winds, ripped through the middle of the island September 20.

"Beyond our basic humanity, there is a direct imperative for New Jersey to be part of Puerto Rico's healing process", Murphy said. The delay in getting basic services to the USA territory is inexcusable.

"Because Pinnacle is devoted to providing quality affordable housing infused with public art, doing a mural to honor Puerto Rico offered great synergy", Wolfson said.

"It is time for us to show our humanity and our connection not just with fellow Americans, but with an island whose culture and beauty is alive and well here in New Jersey", Murphy said.

More than four months after being hit by a hurricane, many Puerto Ricans still are without power, a basic need in this day and age.
