We believe that successful waterfronts begin with sound planning, time-tested urban design and an understanding that the water’s edge belongs to the public.

Don’t miss out on FBW’s Annual Fundraising Party November 10th

The Fund for a Better Waterfront depends on the funds we raise at our one big annual fundraising party – CONNECT THE WATERFRONT – each year. Again this year, this event will be held at Antique Loft, 33-41 Newark Street, Hoboken, New Jersey at 7 p.m. There will be an open bar for beer and wine, and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Sponsoring the event is a great way to support our work, promote your company, and show your customers your strong commitment to the community. To be a sponsor contact FBW’s Program Director Heather Gibbons at heather@betterwaterfront.org.
