Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy prevails in court; condo association in Edgewater must open waterfront walkway to the public

On January 14, Judge Lisa Perez Friscia of a New Jersey State Superior Court in Bergen County ordered an Edgewater condo association to allow public access to a 900-foot section of its waterfront for use as part of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway, an 18-mile public path connecting the Bayonne Bridge to the George Washington Bridge. In her decision, she cited a long list of court rulings upholding the Public Trust Doctrine dating back to 1821.

Please include FBW in your year-end giving. Make your waterfront greener & fully connected.

This year’s theme, The Greening of Sinatra Drive, reflects FBW’s concerted effort to ensure a generous row of street trees is included in the City’s Sinatra Drive Project. This will be a big step forward, tying together the parks at the South Waterfront to Maxwell Place Park and eventually to a new park at Union Dry Dock. Your support is vital to finishing these critical elements of Hoboken’s waterfront park, first proposed by FBW in 1990 with its Plan for the Hoboken Waterfront.
