Notes Hudson Waterfront Walkway: Plan and Design Guidelines. March 1984.

Abstract
This report presents the results of a two year study, funded by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), to plan a continuous Waterfront Walkway on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River between the George Washington Bridge and the Bayonne Bridge. The report sets out the recommendations of the Hudson Walkway Plan and presents Design Guidelines for the Walkway. The Design Guidelines present DEP's minimum locational and dimensional requirements for the walkway, and standards and suggestions for examples of means by which public access can be incorporated within a variety of different uses and types of development.

(Note: a revision in 1989 was also issued.)
