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.

The south side of Liberty State Park is being targeted for transformation into a "millionaires' marina" without public hearings! There will be hundreds of boats and yachts near the picnic grounds devastating the tranquility and expansiveness of the Park and obstructing the open majestic views toward the Verrazano Bridge.  The marina will block public access to the 3 public jetties with locked dock gates and facilities.  Public parking will also be greatly reduced.
