HOBOKEN -— New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning gave an autographed football to a Fund for a Better Waterfront event Tuesday. The football was auctioned off for $650. The event, hosted by FBW and Eastern Environmental Law Center, was held at the Elks club. Manning could not attend but released a statement showing his support of FBW’s efforts opposing local overdevelopment and other waterfront threats.

“The Fund for a Better Waterfront has played an integral role in the planning, development and protection of Hoboken’s beautiful waterfront over the past twenty years. I’d like to see their success continue for many years to come," he said.

Manning lives uptown in the Tea Building on the waterfront.

Fund for a Better Waterfront has protested the possible sale of the Union Dry Dock company to NJ Transit (but NJ Transit has since said the sale won’t happen). The group also has opposed high-rises from NJ Transit, a bill allowing Stevens Institute to circumvent local zoning regulations, and the Shipyard Monarch development project. The Shipyard issue is scheduled to be heard in court this Friday.

Why is this website obsessed with stalking Eli? The strange photos, the constant updates, posting where he lives. Is this really news? Meanwhile, a hudson county mayor testifies before Congress today and I can't read about it here.

In the next to last sentence, I think you mead "opposed" not "proposed."
