Public and Interagency Coordination for the Hudson – Raritan Estuary Feasibility Study
Abstract:The study area encompasses the Port District (Figure 1), a sub-set of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, which extends from the Sandy Hook-Rockaway Transect north up the Hudson River to the Tappan Zee Bridge. It includes the tidally influenced portions of rivers flowing into the estuary, such as the Hackensack, Passaic, Raritan, Shrewsbury, and Navesink Rivers, the Harlem River, and the East River from the Battery through Hells Gate to the Long Island Sound (LIS). The study area also includes the western portion of the LIS extending east to Greenwich Cove, Connecticut on the north shore of the LIS and just east of and including Hempstead Harbor, Long Island, New York on the south shore. This highly developed urban area encompasses approximately 2,000 square miles with an average density of nearly 6,000 people per square mile.
