The Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy (HRWC)
HRWC is a non-profit organization that monitors the construction and maintenance of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. Since 1988, the all volunteer board has implemented The Public Trust Doctrine by seeking the protection and enforcement of the public’s right to free, unobstructed access to the Walkway. The Conservancy provides a voice of support for public access to the waterfront before governmental entities, legislative, regulatory and commercial bodies whose actions impact the development of the Waterfront.
The Board works closely with residents of the area, local, state and federal governmental agencies, developers and land owners to increase access and utilization of the Walkway. It responds to inquiries and educates the public on issues and events surrounding the Waterfront and the Walkway.
