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.

Urban Planning and the Hoboken Waterfront

Thank you to all who attended our presentation at the Hoboken Public Library on February 22, “Urban Planning and the Hoboken Waterfront.” Special thanks to City Council President Jen Giattino and Councilmembers Paul Presinzano and Joe Quintero who joined us. The presentation explained why Hoboken’s waterfront is so successful compared to the other Hudson River waterfront municipalities. Unlike Jersey City, Weehawken, West New York and all the way up to Edgewater, the development of Hoboken’s waterfront was based on a plan and a clear delineation between the public park at the water’s edge and the upland private development.

The Schooner Apollonia has added Hoboken to its 2024 sail freight season; buy a boat box to support sustainable freight 

Exciting news! The Schooner Apollonia will be docking in Hoboken as part of its 2024 sail freight season, making stops in May, June, September and October. Thanks to the 13 people who pledged to purchase a Boat Box, we were able to add Hoboken as a port. The Boat Box, costing $250, is similar to community-supported agriculture. It is a way to support Apollonia’s mission: shipping goods sustainably up and down the Hudson River. In addition, you will receive a box with a sampling of the products being shipped. You can show up four times this season when the Apollonia docks to receive your box and witness this magnificent, restored 1947 sailing vessel. More information is provided on the link below.
