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.

Join us at the Hoboken Cove in Maxwell Place Park for hands-on community science activities, oyster habitats with the NY/NJ Baykeeper, mural-making with local artists Ann Marshall & Marni Fylling, a waterfront tour with FBW’s Ron Hine, refreshments, and music by James Calleo!
