NY Adventure Club Field Trip: Exploring the Secrets of the NJ Palisades


Sunday, May 20th at 10:30 AM at the Burr-Hamilton Duel Site statue

The ruins of an abandoned mansion, a haunted clock tower in the middle of NJ’s wealthiest neighborhood, a scenic overlook on a 500-foot-high cliff — come explore the secrets of the narrow stretch of land right across from New York City.

Join New York Adventure Club for a field trip to the New Jersey Palisades, NJ, a line of steep cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southeastern New York formed nearly 200 million years ago.

Guided by a New York Adventure Club brand ambassador, this unique field trip will include:

A mile-long trail walk to the abandoned ruins of Cliffdale Manor, a fifteen-room manor house built in 1911 for George A. Zabriskie, New York representative for the Minneapolis-based Pillsbury flour mills

A visit to a hidden beach on the Hudson

A visit to incredible vantage points along the Palisades, from directly underneath the GW Bridge to high on top of cliffs overlooking the Hudson River

A stop at the Devil’s Tower, a stone clock tower originally designed for sugar baron Manuel Rionda (1854–1943) that is claimed to be haunted

Vehicular transportation will be provided to/from meeting location and between all field trip destinations.

See you there!

Taste of Weehawken event to be held at new hotel

dgbj_04weetaste15_01via The Hudson Reporter – Thirty-two local restaurants, eateries, and caterers will provide samples of their delectable dishes at the 18th annual Taste of Weehawken fundraiser on April 24, taking place at the not-yet-open Marriott Hotel on the waterfront.

Proceeds from the annual culinary fundraiser will go toward programming and facility upgrades to the Weehawken Free Public Library.

“It’s a great community event,” said Mayor Richard Turner. “It gets everybody together from all over town and raises funds for the library, which is a mainstay of the community. It’s really a great night to have great food from a lot of great restaurants and vendors.”

The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Marriott hotel at 500 Port Imperial Blvd., sixth floor. The property, near the NY Waterway terminal, offers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.

Phenomenal food

Roughly 400 food enthusiasts are expected to attend the Taste this year.

Both high profile and emerging local restaurants will participate, featuring American, Cuban, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Greek, Mexican and many other cuisines.

Drinks and desserts will be offered, including cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, artisan chocolates, and other confections.

“I am looking forward to everything. All the food is really great,” said Turner. “The deserts are all very dangerous.”

Also on hand will be aspiring young chefs from the Weehawken High School Culinary Arts Program. This year 10 students were chosen to participate. They will serve veggie buffalo “meatballs” with a blue cheese dipping sauce and a ricotta cheesecake with mixed berries for dessert, according to the class’s teacher Joseph Mantineo.
