Petition Launch Party Wed. night to connect Hoboken’s waterfront park at Union Dry Dock

Join us @City Bistro . 56 Fourteenth Street . Hoboken, NJ . Wednesday, June 7 . 6 pm to 8 pm

Join FBW and neighborhood residents for the launch of our petition drive to secure the Union Dry Dock property at 901 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken as 3 acres of public parkland, finally connecting Maxwell Place Park to Castle Point Park and creating the largest addition to Hoboken’s string of waterfront parks since Maxwell Place Park was created in 2001.

We have a unique opportunity to make the Union Dry Dock site – currently used to repair barges — a public waterfront park. But we must act now. The property, owned by Union Dry Dock & Repair Co. and consisting of 3.15 acres of land and 5.21 acres under water, is currently for sale.

Please join us on Wednesday, June 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. at City Bistro, 56 14th Street in Hoboken to learn more. There will be a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.

Your presence will send an important message to our elected leaders that connecting the waterfront park at Union Dry Dock is a rare opportunity our city can’t afford to miss.

FBW is available to speak to your organization or condo association to provide details and talk about how you can be part of this campaign. Contact us at fbw@betterwaterfront.org.
