Last October, the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy granted its “Design Award” to Ron Hine and FBW in recognition of their work on Pier A Park and the riverfront promenade from Newark to Fourth Streets in Hoboken. In October 2009, Hine made a presentation at the Hoboken Historical Museum entitled “On the Waterfront: 1989 to 2009 – Paving the Way for a Public Park” as part of the Museum’s series, Up & Down the River, the History of the Hudson, 1609 to 2009.
