The state has lent its support to an initiative to build more docks
along the Hudson River, between New York City and Lake Champlain. The
project, for which the state has already granted $750,000, is meant to
address the issue of poor water access, a problem that Clay Hiles,
executive director of the Hudson River Foundation, says has
long plagued the waterfront. “There’s been a recognition of the irony
that the city of New York and the whole Hudson Valley has this
spectacular waterfront and very little access,” Hiles said. The
development is a part of the year-long quadricentennial celebration of
Henry Hudson’s discovery of the waterway. Upwards of 40 different
locations have been identified as possible dock sites, as different
towns along the river are vying for their portion of the funds. New
York City-based non-profit advocacy group Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance has requested
funds for two docks in Inwood and Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge neighborhood.
