The Coalition envisions that the Embankment will be owned by Jersey City and
reused as a linear park and trail, a segment of the East Coast Greenway and
Liberty-Water Gap Trail. It will be a serene oasis in a densely populated city.
Public access, with safeguards for habitat and adjoining communities, will
ensure that this historic structure continues to serve generations to come.
