Star Ledger: Newark Riverfront Boat Tours continue to lift veil on lesser-known feature of city
Includes a thumbnail history of the Passaic and hopeful news about it’s recent development. (Which has been a long time coming).
Led by Sheehan of Hackensack Riverkeeper and Damon Rich, Chief Urban Designer for the City of Newark, the four-year-old city-sponsored boat tours are intended to raise awareness and build support for a river long-fraught with pollution and limited public access. Except for the occasional blue heron or egret, little activity can be found on the Passaic.
Boat tours are still running: $5, more info here.
