The Harsimus Branch Embankment is a stone structure than once carried
Pennsylvania Railroad freight to the Hudson River waterfront.
Now a boundary of the National Historic districts of Hamilton Park and Harsimus Cove
in downtown Jersey City, and a state, national, and municipal landmark in its own right,
the Embankment is an important part of the future of the community and the region.
This is its story.
