The Embankment is a quiet neighbor to more than 300 properties along its
immediate length, and a historic and open space asset to Jersey City.
Its future as a place for everyone to enjoy can be realized
only with the support of people like you, acting on its behalf.

Get involved to turn current possibilities into realities.


For 17 years the threat of demolition has hung over the Harsimus Branch Embankment. The effort to preserve it was a grassroots initiative undertaken against great odds, and continues to be fueled by the energy of citizens. Only with the sustained support of hundreds of individuals and organizations has the work of the Embankment Preservation Coalition to secure the Embankment been possible.
