Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer was joined this afternoon by Stevens Institute of Technology Dr. President Nariman Farvardin and members of the community to cut the ribbon to open a portion of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. The walkway between Sinatra Park and Castle Point Park includes a section completed by the Stevens Institute of Technology and a rebuilt section of walkway around Sinatra Field.
“With the opening of this walkway, Hoboken now has a continuous waterfront multiuse path from the Jersey City border to our skate park at Castle Point for our active community to enjoy,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Thanks to decades of work by committed activists, our waterfront is already the envy of the state. I look forward during the next few months to working with the community to redesign central Sinatra Drive into a safe and attractive destination for everyone to enjoy.”
“The entire Stevens community is proud and excited to commemorate the long-awaited opening of this portion of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway,” said Dr. Nariman Farvardin, President of Stevens Institute of Technology. “We are especially thankful for the leadership of Senator Bob Menendez, Congressman Albio Sires and County Executive Tom DeGise for their strong advocacy in support of funding for this walkway. This project will enhance public access to the beautiful Hudson River waterfront for our community as well as our Hoboken neighbors.”
