The HRWC regrets and honors  the passing of the Hon. Brendan Byrne.  Governor Byrne was  the guiding force behind the legislation that created the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway at a time when the Hudson River waterfront was a jumble of abandoned railroads, decaying factories and warehouses.  We will remember him for his vision and leadership but also his sense of humor.  He was a valued friend of the Conservancy and we will miss him.

Christie's marina plan for Liberty State Park may be short-lived

Since May 2011, the DEP has been litigating the violations incurred on the property of the Le Jardin restaurant in Edgewater.  The current action is against IMO Lookout Associates, 1275 River Road Associates and Fred Daibes, the owners of the property. This action addresses illegal filling in of the Hudson River and various unapproved illegal construction events on the property since 2001.  A settlement was reached in June 2017 and the Walkway will be built at Le Jardin fixing this crucial gap in the Walkway.  Fines were stipulated to support the Walkway. Our response to the settlement.
