Hudson River Waterfront Walkway Plan

Weehawken NJ

During the 1970s, public redevelopment substantially cleared the waterfront land and guided new development in nine communities that line the west shore of the Hudson River facing Manhattan. The New Jersey EPA retained WRT to prepare the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway Plan and Design Guidelines that developers are required to follow as a condition for waterfront development permit approval. Most of the finger piers have been removed, and Boris Pushkarov's vision of a continuous 18-mile walkway from Bayonne and Liberty State Park to the George Washington Bridge has been substantially realized. As planner and landscape architect, WRT has designed over 3.5 miles of the completed walkway.
