If your organization would like to endorse the Coalition's goals, which are to preserve the Harsimus Branch Embankment in Jersey City, reuse it for a habitat-oriented linear park and greenway, and connect it to a network of parks and greenways as a segment of the East Coast Greenway and Liberty-Water Gap Trail, please send an email to info@embankment.org and we will add you to this list.  The Embankment Preservation Coalition is supporting the City of Jersey City's efforts to secure the site for the purposes above and for rail, all uses that are compatible with each other and with the site's historic significance.
