Hudson River Estuary

The NYC Sierra Club works to protect the lower Hudson River and its waterfront. Our three major goals are: protecting the Hudson River as an extremely important aquatic habitat; stopping inappropriate development on the shoreline and in the River itself; and creating true parkland for public access to the water.

We must fight constantly to preserve and extend one of the Sierra Club’s great victories, the defeat of the Westway boondoggle. Because some of the bad ideas that were pioneered in this area are now being proposed elsewhere in the city, we also pay attention to more general waterfront-related issues.
