Liberty State Park to Partly Reopen By Holiday

Storm-damaged Liberty State Park, with its views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty, will partly reopen by Thanksgiving.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection says the 9/11 Memorial, the Grove of Remembrance and some recreation areas in the state’s most popular park will be open by Thursday.

Work continues on restoring access to the Interpretive Center, portions of the Hudson River Walkway within the park and the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal Building.

The Terminal Building received major water damage as a result of Sandy’s storm surge and still has no power or sanitation. Other damage and debris removal must also take place before the park can fully reopen.

Liberty State Park draws more than 5 million visitors a year.
