Save Jersey City’s High Line– Deadline Tomorrow!

embankmentLike 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!
