“The Fund for a Better Waterfront has played an integral role in the planning, development and protection of Hoboken’s beautiful waterfront over the past twenty years. I’d like to see their success continue for many years to come," he said.
Manning lives uptown in the Tea Building on the waterfront.
Fund for a Better Waterfront has protested the possible sale of the Union Dry Dock company to NJ Transit (but NJ Transit has since said the sale won’t happen). The group also has opposed high-rises from NJ Transit, a bill allowing Stevens Institute to circumvent local zoning regulations, and the Shipyard Monarch development project. The Shipyard issue is scheduled to be heard in court this Friday.
