Jan. 7, 2018 -Read Our opinion on Union Dry Dock  and NY Times' opinion.

5/5/18 from The Friends of Liberty State Park:

Gov Murphy's DEP saved LSP's Caven Point by its rejection of Liberty National Golf Course's proposal to lease away and destroy this priceless urban habitat behind Lady Liberty, a haven for wildlife, environmental education and nature explorers of all ages.

Many thanks to the Friends of LSP's co-leader in this grassroots effort, the NY/NJ Baykeeper with its Exective Director Greg Remaud, and to all park supporters and to all local and statewide groups who spoke out to protect this peaceful urban sanctuary!

The Jersey Journal story is here and The Record story is here. The DEP letter to the Golf Course is here.

Tremendous thanks to Gov Murphy and the great NJDEP leadership team of Acting DEP Commissioner Catherine McCabe, Assistant Commissioner of Natural and Historic Resources Ray Bukowski, and Director of the Green Acres Program, Martha Sullivan Sapp.

A beautiful silent video (except for bird sounds), "The Wildlife of Caven Point, an Untamed Estuary" by John Dunstan is here. An amazing"360" moveable video by Jon Tobias of the 3/3 nature walk protest with 250 people participating is here.

Thanks for your activism with phone calls, letters to the editor, emails, protests and social media support, and thanks also to dozens of local and statewide groups, especially NJ Audubon, the Hudson and NJ Sierra Club Chapters, the JC Parks Coalition, the Embankment Preservation Coalition, Bike JC  and the JC Environmental Commission

The Friends has faith that this DEP in due time will also reject the Suntex Marina plan to take over the park's non-commercial, peaceful  southside with 300 yachts, taking one of the two free parking lots, public land and priceless, panoramic vistas. When the marina plan is rejected, we hope that a long and peaceful LSP era will begin!

John Dunstan, a local photographer, has created a film that dramatically shows why Caven Point needs to remain undisturbed as part of LSP.  You can watch the film at https://vimeo.com/240773305.

The Friends of Liberty State Park has cancelled the May 19th rally.

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.
