FBW’s 25th Anniversary Party

Hoboken, New Jersey
Join us for an evening of music, dancing, entertainment, fine food & drink in celebration of FBW’s 25th Anniversary! There is an open bar. Zafra Kitchens will serve up Little Latin Dishes and Emily and the Ideals will provide the music. FBW will present its 3rd annual Riparian Award to honor the two developers who made Maxwell Place Park possible.
Setting Standards for 25 Years
For this historic 25th anniversary celebration, FBW gratefully recognizes the dozens of people who have contributed to the ongoing effort to transform a formerly industrial waterfront into new development that includes a continuous, public park at the water’s edge. Sustained success will “connect the waterfront” park from the Hoboken Train Terminal to Weehawken Cove.
Each year, FBW engages new generations of waterfront advocates. This is critical to ensure Hoboken’s future, as we seek to extend the extraordinary features of the South Waterfront — the park, the lush tree canopy, bike path and lively streetscape — throughout the city’s central waterfront.
FBW continues to apply the best thinking in urban design as it creates an alternative vision for the Hoboken Railyard. This plan addresses deficiencies in the City’s redevelopment plan and allows for the acquisition of Union Dry Dock to secure one of the final links in the waterfront park. FBW also is an important partner in litigation opposing the Monarch Project to combat the privatization of a parcel of land that should be the northern capstone of Hoboken’s public waterfront
Your support over the years has sustained us and for this we are grateful. Please join us in this 25th anniversary celebration.
