This year we’re back at the Hoboken Elks Club. We are thrilled to be presenting the 2019 Riparian Award to the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association, the group that helped start the “riverkeeper” movement, and have been fighting to protect the Hudson River for more than 50 years. Above image is the original Riverkeeper boat that was recently found and will be restored.
Weehawken Planning Board rejects Hartz application to build 200 foot tall twin towers at Weehawken Cove
On Tuesday night, October 29, the Weehawken Planning Board rejected an application by Hartz Mountain Industries, the developer of Lincoln Harbor, to build a massive project at the Weehawken Cove abutting the planned Rebuild by Design park in Hoboken. Neighboring residents from Weehawken, Union City and Hoboken have attended the Weehawken Planning Board hearings objecting to the building heights — two 18-story towers exceeding 200 feet — and scale — nearly 100 percent lot coverage. The vote was unanimous.
