“Being able to enjoy a walk along the Hudson River is a major benefit to living in Jersey City,” Mayor Steven Fulop began in a statement.

“Newport has done good work around the importance of providing amenities for all Jersey City residents to use, with Lighthouse Point being the latest addition. It’s an important contribution to the City’s fabric.”

To date, Newport has built many acres of public space along the Hudson River, including 1.1 miles of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway.

“The opening of this space is yet another example of Newport’s commitment to the people of Jersey City. This is a place for people to gather, enjoy and take in the views that are inextricably linked to this neighborhood,” added Newport Managing Director Jeremy Farrell.

“As with Water’s Soul, these open spaces serve to affirm that community is at the heart of everything Newport does.”

Newport consists of luxury homes for more than 12,000 people, five million square feet of office space, and an open area that centers around a 50-foot tall blue and white lighthouse. 

“Green spaces play a significant role in fostering a vibrant and healthy Jersey City. Thank you to all who made this public space possible for everyone in Jersey City!,” added Ward E Councilman James Solomon.

The ribbon cutting will be held tomorrow, April 25th, at 2 p.m.
