Having said that I agree that we don't need a private marina on the south side. On the north side, the assholes that run the marina did not even fix the asphalt path that runs along their marina, it is full of ruts and cracks and not bikeable. They don't care about the park. The park should jack up their rent. No to south marina!


'Not bikeable'? It's not perfect, but I've biked it over and over and over.

SAVE the South Side of LIBERTY STATE PARK from a secret deal for a Massive “Millionaires’ Marina”

Email DEP Commissioner Bob Martin to strongly oppose (even in one sentence) this new south side marina and to demand public hearings.

We deserve our park, protect the wildlife at Liberty State Park

A view of Liberty Park.

Don't take parkland away

Dear Commissioner Martin,

I have lived in Jersey City for more than 20 years, and although I love many things about my city, the lack of green, open space for our communities is a point of serious concern. A growing city needs to balance development with access to public land, and this decision made by the state will severely impact our city and residents.

The outgoing governor and administration should not be allowed to lease our park away to the highest bidder without public hearings and a public comment period. The South Overlook Lawn is a haven for our residents, a place to picnic, play, bike, walk, fish and enjoy the view of the Hudson River and Lady Liberty. A commercial marina will significantly change the footprint of the park and our access and use of the southside lawn.

The residents of Jersey City, and the surrounding areas, deserve access to open land and public parks. Do not take that away without hearing us out first.

Meesha Diaz Haddad, Jersey City

Protect Liberty State Park from development

The Hudson County Group of the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club has passed a resolution to oppose the development of a marina on the south shore of Liberty State Park.


The Hudson County Group is concerned with environmental justice issues and feels that putting yet another marina for wealthy boat owners in Liberty State Park is a theft of the people's common land. These open green and free spaces should be made available for the poor, oppressed workers and immigrants who love and need this park as much as anyone else.

Building a marina on the south side of Liberty State Park also risks damage to the natural environment of the Cove area where various rare and endangered species have been seen, such as the Snowy Owl, the Norther Harrier and the Goshawk.

We call upon our state, county and city governments to do what they can to protect this area of Liberty State Park so that the people will have access to view wildlife and have an open view unobstructed by the toys of the wealthy.

Patricia Hilliard, Secretary of the Hudson County Group-NJ Sierra Club

Uproar, yes, there should be an uproar if something happens without public hearings. This state is famous for sweetheart deals.

I'm not sure why everyone is in such an uproar over this. The likely location would be behind the existing sea wall, in the far west of the cut. It's currently used as an anchorage for mostly transient boaters. As a sailor, I'd love to see more boats on the upper harbor.

Here'd be my guess of where it would go.Resized Image

LSP is the only park for the east side of Jersey City

I am an 18-year resident of downtown Jersey City. Liberty State Park is the only recreational park that the residents on the east side of Jersey City have. The park already has major developments in Liberty Marina on the North side and Liberty National golf course on the South side,

The South side is a major recreation and picnic area for residents of Greenville. Placing another marina there would greatly restrict those areas and the enjoyment of resident of all residents of Jersey City. In the warmer months, I bike to the park daily and ride along the waterside path to the south side. I enjoy the vistas and seeing people fishing, kiting, walking, running and biking in the park.

A new marina on the south side of the park would restrict the usable areas of the park. This is all we have. The park is also a magnet for visitors from the four corners of the globe. Another marina is not what we need, we need more open space as the city is building higher and getting more crowded.

The NJDEP needs to have a public hearing to hear the concerns of the local residents.

Frank Cadden, Jersey City

-----------------------------------------------------

New marina would be travesty

The proposed commercial marina at the south end of Liberty State Park would be a travesty. It would obstruct the priceless views of the harbor and would bring more traffic to the park.

I agree with the Friends of Liberty State Park that this private facility is counter to the purpose of a public park. In addition, it could severely affects the Caven Point Natural Area with its wildlife habitat.

I have urged the state's commissioner of Environmental Protection to reject this proposal and encourage others to do as well.

Bill Armbruster, Jersey City

Just say 'no' to 'millionaires' marina at Liberty State Park

Hold public hearings on marina plan

To NJDEP Commissioner Bob Martin,

The overwhelming majority of people living in New Jersey (and New York and everywhere) strongly oppose a new marina at Liberty State Park.

We demand public hearings and a public comment period. You work for the people, not the one percent, and the people want parks for peaceful places for picnics and play, not private spaces only for private development and profit. Parks for for people, not profit!

I am a long-time resident of Jersey City and I will continue to fight with Sam Pesin and the thousands of others who love this sacred park and appreciate ALL open, public, green spaces. We promise you this: we will not allow you or your degenerate crony capitalist cohort get away with it. We're watching you all, we are shining a bright light on you all, and we are holding you accountable for your despicable malfeasance.

To hell with your obscene millionaires' marina! To hell with any sick thought to privatize one square foot of our beautiful park!

Lenore Holz, Jersey City
