Tell LG: Don’t spoil America’s Palisades

LG Electronics, a giant overseas maker of TVs and other consumer products, wants to build an enormous 143-foot office tower on the Hudson River Palisades that would rise high above the ridgeline and spoil the natural beauty of this iconic American landmark. Send a message demanding that LG consider an alternative proposal that would protect the famed Palisades.

Dear Mr. Koo,

I am deeply disturbed by your company's plan to build an enormous 143-foot tower on the Palisades, breaking forever the park's scenic ridge line. Rising four times higher than the community's 35-foot height limit respected for decades, the LG tower would violate a longtime public trust and spoil the dramatic natural beauty of an iconic American landmark enjoyed by millions on parkways, bridges and trails from both sides of the Hudson River.

There is no excuse for the severe damage LG would inflict on the extraordinary unspoiled views of this scenic and recreational treasure. On LG's large 27-acre lot, a low-rise alternative design would provide the same amount of office space and the same number of jobs, while respecting the integrity of the Palisades and a century of conservation efforts to protect the area's priceless natural heritage for all.

I strongly urge LG to redesign the office building so that it will not be visible above the Palisades ridgeline. By respecting our landmark Park, LG would be acting in its own best interest and doing what is right to protect the Palisades.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
[City, State ZIP]

As former Executive Director of Wave Hill, Certified Planner, and resident of Riverdale, I deplore your company’s violation of long accepted regional planning goals and the understandings of the Palisade Interstate Park Commission for the sake of narrow local and financial interests.

It is unconscionable to have a huge bldg mar the beauty of a

landmark that has been preserved by concerned conservationists who had the foresight to protect this stretch of land without having to look at yet another tower. What is wrong with this country who would allow such a monstrosity to be built there.

It is a chance for LG to join us in showing an appreciation for the beauty in the world around us. Once damaged it cannot be restored. It will certainly damage our appreciation of LG products, which we have appreciated in the past.

I am currently renovating my apt. – refrigerator, washer/dryer, TVs, monitors, cell phone, etc., and LG is not and WILL NOT be considered for purchase as long as this tower is a possibility. I am also discouraging all friends and family from considering LG in their purchases!

It is clear that the tower is intended for ego and marketing purposes, and bad corporate “neighbors” will be shunned!!

Help stop another high-rise from coming up over Palisades in Fort Lee.

Don’t be so small minded and so selfish. Leave the natural beauty for others to enjoy rather then building an office block.

If this tower is built. I would never buy an LG product again and would actively encourage all I know to never support your company again.

Neither I nor any member of my family, nor any of my friends will ever buy LG products again if you go through with this – we will boycott! LG should be ashamed.

I have bought LG products for many years. If this eyesore is built, I will never buy your products again and I will be VEHEMENT in urging others not to as well. Can you imagine if an American company did this in Korea how you would feel?

If LG goes forward with this plan, I will no longer purchase any LG products and will work hard to make sure that no one else does either. Please lower the height to previous restrictions.
