While parts of this zone have flooded substantially, the area also has its share of socially vulnerable neighborhoods and nearby residual pollution. We see design opportunities along Montgomery Street in Jersey City from the Armory (on the ridge) to City Hall, connecting various vulnerable neighborhoods and empty lots. In addition, it might make sense to study a bridge connection from Lower Manhattan to the ridges of Jersey City, primarily as an evacuation route (there are currently only tunnels under the Hudson), but also as a means of access and connection in Jersey City and even as a regional landscape park connecting New Jersey to New York on a daily basis.
