The Truth about NY Waterway’s Union Dry Dock Facility

NY Waterway's new facility at Union Dry Dock in Hoboken is critical to our continued ability to effectively serve the over 32,000 commuters of New Jersey who rely on NY Waterway each day.

After 135 years of marine use, the Union Dry Dock site fell into a state of great dilapidation. NY Waterway will transform it into a waterfront gem for the people of Hoboken.


NY Waterway's state-of-the-art maintenance facility will be environmentally responsible. It will not be a heavy refueling station, holding less fuel than most neighborhood gas stations. Additionally, ferry traffic will be contained to the north, with Hoboken Cove strengthened & protected from further erosion.


NY Waterway will create a beautified public greenspace. It includes a wider landscaped promenade, new fishing pier & kayak landing. Its street front fencing will be see-through (not a view-obstructing wall).


The NY Waterway UDD plan is self-funded and includes a modern attractive marina, public greenspace, recreational enhancements, and protection of Hoboken Cove erosion. AT NO COST TO HOBOKEN TAX PAYERS.


We are committed to providing reliable quality ferry service to the City of Hoboken and its neighbors. More than 32,000 people a day rely on NY Waterway's 10 New Jersey terminals. In times of emergency, more than 250,000 people in Manhattan have relied on NY Waterway for safe passage home.

NY Waterway's Union Dry Dock facility is vital to the people of Hoboken, Hudson County & All of New Jersey.

NY Waterway legally owns the property and Hoboken seizing it through Eminent Doman is just not right. Please voice your support!
