Meet at Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse
Maxwell Place Park – 11th & Sinatra Drive North
Saturday, March 28 at 11 AM
Join the Fund for a Better Waterfront as we kick off our 30th anniversary year and show our commitment to finishing “Hoboken’s Highline” — a linear, public riverfront park.
At 11:30 AM, the event will be documented with an aerial drone video plus a series of aerial photos.
With Hands Across the Waterfront, we will “connect the waterfront” by forming a human chain along the still unfinished segments of Hoboken’s waterfront from Union Dry Dock south. The goal is to push for a fully contiguous, unquestionably public — tree-lined park, Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and protected bicycle pathway.
For this event, FBW is partnering with the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse, Resilience Paddle Sports, Bike Hoboken, Hudson County Sierra Club and other local groups.
Note: Everyone will be spaced a minimum of 8 feet apart. There will be no touching, no holding of hands. All precautions will be taken to keep people safe.
Trust Fund will ensure public open space to be enjoyed for generations to come
