Liberty State Park isn't just any kind of city park. It is part of the US Park And Forestry Service whose Parent Agency is, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

Key environmental permits have been approved for the building of a 16-mile natural gas pipeline across portions of northern New Jersey and into New York City. December 02, 2011 Associated Press

On June 08 2012, a state commission approved spectra energy’s proposal to run a section of the Houston energy giant’s controversial natural gas pipeline below ground in Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Gas pipeline to be put under Liberty State Park in Jersey City NJ. spectra energy wins state approval Friday June 08 2012 by Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal

The Texas Eastern natural gas pipeline from Linden to New York City, including a 15.5-mile stretch of 30-inch pipe that would travel the length of Bayonne and Jersey City before turning east near the Hoboken border and heading under the Hudson River, to Manhattan's West Village.

NO NO, NO, ABSOLUTELY, NO, gas pipeline Under Liberty State Park!

Judges; Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, please do not grant spectra corporation these pipeline permits.

The Jersey City, Hoboken, NJ/NY Harbor region should be protected from spectra corporation's attempts to extend their pipeline, that is against the best interests and wishes of these cities. Jersey City Mayor to President Obama: stop the Spectra Energy pipeline. Jersey Journal December 07, 2011 Contact the White House

Three important reasons to deny spectra's proposal:

1 The obvious reason, that the entire areas are way too densely populated.

2 New Jersey/New York Harbor; (where spectra wants to cross), is totally filled with Federally protected Historical Sites. Many of which, are very close to a National Monument, Our Statue Of Liberty!

3 The construction of spectra's gas pipeline would destroy the shoreline and natural environment; habitat, of New Jersey/New York Harbor's fish, marine life, birds and other animal populations for many generations, if not forever!

The entire New Jersey/New York Harbor from Liberty State Park's shore, across to Manhattan's West Village, (besides being filled with historical sites) is a fish estuary. Common species include bluefish, shad, striped bass and blue claw crabs.

Major Estuaries, Bays, and Rivers along the Northeast United States Coast Summary of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) Designation:

NJ/NY harbor is Part of an Department of Environmental Protection's Program that consists of, an enormous watershed encompassing a much larger area.

In 2011, HEP updated its geographic footprint to include the Hudson River watershed up to the Troy Dam, as well as the watersheds of the Raritan, Passaic, Hackensack Rivers in New Jersey. This watershed approach is much more in keeping with the way other major estuaries are managed.

Also; the Richard J. Sullivan Natural Area of the Park; including Communipaw Cove, (36 acres), is a Nature Preserve and consists mainly of salt marsh, one of the few remaining tidal marshes of the Hudson River Estuary.

Please continue to read this post, for many more reasons why spectra's proposal was never a well thought out plan.

This is not an ordinary distribution, gas pipeline; the kind used in order to bring natural gas to homes, businesses and industries. This is; a long-haul, transportation pipeline!

As a transportation type pipeline; this means that, it will always have gas going through it, constantly, not, use a little pump a little more in like with domestic pipelines.

And the state, wants to allow spectra to run this pipeline through the streets of Jersey City!

Has everyone, gone totally crazy? Proposed extension of gas line through densely populated northeastern NJ, has critics Star-Ledger February 27, 2011

Pipeline Frequently Asked Questions Do we want to know the answers? Read please.

spectra corporation is trying to claim eminent domain in order to seize the land, where they want to build their pipeline in Jersey City.

When in effect; they won't be able to build their gas pipeline along this route using eminent domain as a ploy, because; in reality, the main part of the pipeline would be tearing through areas like, the Morris Canal, which is a Federally protected Historical Site,

Stop this Houston,Tx based company. originally from Canada, from ripping off Jersey City, Hoboken, New York City's Waterways and West Village!

spectra cannot build their pipeline through Jersey City's neighborhoods.

An alternative route that spectra can use; is, when the Bayonne part of their pipeline reaches the City Line on Kennedy Blvd, it then needs to go around the back of Jersey City's Route 440, along its west side waterway Newark Bay.

Then, go north about 5 miles along the shore, following the water line in Newark Bay. And Then cross over from there or from Hoboken, to New York City. I would need maps to say where. I'm not an engineer. They get the big bucks to figure this kind of stuff out. Although; crossing over from this part of Jersey City or even as far as Hoboken, would still bring the pipeline to lower Manhattan, (Canal Street) and create the same environmental damage concerns.

Hoboken objects to spectra's proposed gas pipeline too. One can understand how they would not like it destroying their pristine NJ/NY Harbor! Hoboken, New Jersey

Ellis Island 1892 to 1924 America's "Golden Door"

Ellis Island, was the historical gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States.

Statue of Liberty National Monument The Statue of Liberty National Monument and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum are a popular tour activity for visitors to New York City.


Castle Garden From August 1, 1855 through April 18, 1890, immigrants arriving in the state of New York came through Castle Garden. America's first official immigrant examining and processing center, Castle Garden welcomed approximately 8 million immigrants.

Castle Garden; (Castle Clinton or Fort Clinton), was once a circular sandstone fort, located in Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, New York City, in the United States. It subsequently became a beer garden, an exhibition hall, a theater, the first immigration station (predating Ellis Island) and finally a national monument. 26 Wall Street, New York, NY 10005-1996 (212) 344-7220
I wrote this post because; spectra energy corporation, makes me mad!

No one in Jersey City and Lower Manhattan wants the stupid pipeline.

I don't want it either. Especially in Lower New York/New Jersey Harbor or going through any of our towns and cities. I just put the pieces together here, to help my friends out. They always helped me a lot in my life!

These are, very populated areas and coincidentally, the proposed pipeline runs through many of the poorer sections of Jersey City.

Could this plan be any more stupid? Either the planning engineer is crazy or spectra's swindling New Jersey big time! Even I can figure this out.

I just sent this post to NJ Gov. Chris Christie and told him this too.

What a rip off all around!

Passion strikes and I fly! An infinite amount of small rebellions.

For the past two days; I've been dreaming
that tough guys are threatening me, but that someone comes and saves me each time.

Tonight I was dreaming that a guy saved me who looked a lot like the one in this picture .

Except I was calling him Larry or Lawrence, or something like that.

He just smiled at me, walked right in and walked me away. And no one said one word to him.

When I woke up; I remembered having seen (in my google research yesterday), that the shoreline area that surrounds Liberty State Park, etc, and all of NY/NJ harbor, itself, is, a natural fish estuary and habitat.
