Like the High Line? Want to help with our sister project? Now's your chance!
The Harsimus Stem Embankment, an elevated stone structure that runs for a half mile along 6th street in downtown Jersey City needs your help. The Embankment Preservation Coalition is the non-profit group working to preserve the Embankment, develop its top as open space, and integrate the site into a network of local and regional pedestrian and biking trails.
The Coalition needs as many supporters as possible to immediately file an environmental comment with the Surface Transportation Board-- the same government body through which the High Line is preserved.
The process is simple, and only takes a moment. Click here to view the instructions on how to help and to help preserve an "irreplaceable historic and environemental resource." The deadline is April 7th at 4:00 PM, so act now!
