The Bergen Arches Project is a newly formed 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation organized around the Bergen Arches – the common name for the Erie Railroad’s mile-long, four-track cut through the Palisades in Jersey City. The purpose is to help the people of Jersey City to reimagine the city’s place in the 21st century. The ultimate goal is to have this abandoned site reborn and integrated into the city’s life in new and imaginative ways through adaptive reuse.
We are actively looking to engage with the creative community to assist us in the production of a Bergen Arches photo book and to collaborate with photographers, designers, architects, engineers, etc etc. Your vision is essential to the success of the project as we work together to create a space that will transform the essential being of our city in tune with the emerging realities of the 21st century.
