Waterfront Walkway Portion Officially Opens

Hoboken mayor, Stevens president and other officials gather for ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Officials gathered Friday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open a portion of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway between Sinatra and Castle Point parks.

The walkway includes a section completed by the Stevens Institute of Technology and a rebuilt portion around Sinatra Field, according to a statement released by the city.

"With the opening of this walkway, Hoboken now has a continuous waterfront multi-use path from the Jersey City border to our skate park at Castle Point for our active community to enjoy,” Mayor Dawn Zimmer said. "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."

Zimmer was joined Friday by Stevens Institute of Technology President Nariman Farvardin, Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, Freeholder Anthony L. Romano and members of the community.

"The entire Stevens community is proud and excited to commemorate the long-awaited opening of this portion of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway," Farvardin said. "We are especially thankful for the leadership of Sen. 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."
