SCROLL DOWN

HOME


As our post-industrial city continues to amass mid-high rise towers, it’s imperative that we look down as much as we look up for the answers about individuality and place.

PHOTO BOOK

Unlike the High Line in New York City or the Sixth Street Embankment in Jersey City, the Bergen Arches remains out of sight and out of mind—many residents have lived in the community for years do not know that the Bergen Arches exists. Our goal is to share the wonders of this place with the city as a whole and the the photo book will help us achieve this goal. It will feature the Bergen Arches’ past, present condition and future potential as well as photos of the Clean Up initiative.

Who WE ARE

The corporation will engage in a variety of educational, cultural, and community activities through which people will become more aware of the city’s industrial past, sustainability issues facing us this century, and the contributions they can make in shaping Jersey City’s future.
