Habirshaw Park on the Hudson
Yonkers, Westchester County, New York
The area was dominated by industrial facilities that blocked public access to the river.
The property was to be developed to be home to six, 38-story apartment buildings.
Scenic Hudson is working with New York State, Westchester County, the City of Yonkers and the Beczak Environmental Center to create a riverfront park, esplanade and environmental education center. The property is now protected by a 25-acre conservation easement held by The Scenic Hudson Land Trust.
