There's now a live stream of the Pier demo

Whether you lament the demolition of St. Petersburg's inverted pyramid design or are just interested in how it's being done, you can now watch it happening from anywhere in the world.

The company Squaremouth, a service that compares travel insurance rates, is providing a live video stream of the Pier demolition as well as the construction of its replacement, slated to be completed in 2018, Pier Park.

There's not much going on there right now, though, it being beer-thirty on a Friday and all.

The company will also create monthly time-lapse videos of the process.
