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.

FBW Chair Kate Valenta on why you should support the Fund for a Better Waterfront

The Fund for a Better Waterfront was founded on the belief that the waterfront belongs to the people. For the last thirty years, we have been dedicated to our vision of a contiguous public park along the Hudson River. We have achieved a large portion of that goal in Hoboken and are dedicated to its completion through a process of planning, advocacy and partnerships. We believe that Hoboken can be a beacon of smart urban design and inspiration for waterfront renewal worldwide.
