Stroll along the new half-mile section of the Hudson River Walkway that links Liberty State Park with Caven Point and you'll pass through four distinct areas: the wide open space of the park, a preserved area where the pathway rises up on stilts above swampland, the luxury housing of Port Liberte and, finally, the green grounds of the Liberty National Golf Club. "It's a wonderful blend of nature and urban use," said Helen Manogue, president of the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy of New Jersey.
