Protect the Palisades, a coalition of individuals and organizations in New Jersey, New York and across America, is dedicated to preserving the Hudson River Palisades.
The ad hoc coalition has come together in response to the current threat posed by LG Electronics’ plan to build a towering corporate headquarters that will violate the Palisades’ historic landmark views.
Millions of residents and visitors have enjoyed the spectacular cliffs and parkland that have been preserved for over 100 years through the hard work and goodwill of many civic groups and prominent citizens. The following are proud members of Protect the Palisades:
