FBW notifies City officials of discrepancy with lease boundaries

FBW | January 4, 2024

Bowman Consulting produced a map for NY Waterway of the Union Dry Dock site with erroneous lease boundaries. The City of Hoboken posted this map on its Maritime Park website. FBW contacted City officials to point out the contradiction compared to the lease limits approved by the City of Hoboken in February 2023. Subsequently, the City posted a map showing the correct boundaries (see above). The area in dispute was north of the northernmost pier, a mostly water area controlled by the City of Hoboken and outside of the leased area where NY Waterway is allowed to operate. This area is used by the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse during the summer months for its kayaking program.
