Hoboken march for Union Dry Dock set for this weekend

On Saturday, March 9 at 10 a.m. the Fund for a Better Waterfront, Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse, and Resilience Paddle Sports will host a march and rally to save the Union Dry Dock.

The former Union Dry Dock site was purchased by NY Waterway to become its ferry homeport for maintenance and refueling. Residents and local officials have said they want the property to become public open space citing health, safety, and environmental concerns.

The march and rally will “send a message to Governor Murphy that this is absolutely the wrong place for this kind of activity at this unique, ecologically important site, especially given the fact that there are other far more suitable locations for this ferry facility.”

The March will begin at Pier A Park at First Street and Sinatra Drive at 10 a.m. followed by a rally at Maxwell Place Park. All are welcome.
