The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey has established preserved areas within the Port Jersey Peninsula to protect and maintain fragile wetlands and wildlife, and provide a waterfront which can be enjoyed by all.

From here you can see some of the greatest landmarks this area has to offer. If you stand facing Manhattan, you will be enjoying a view of the World Financial Center, and beyond it, the Empire State Building.

The Statue of Liberty can be seen to your left, as well as the red brick buildings of historic Ellis Island.

To your right, the shores of Staten Island connect with the southwestern edge of Long Island via the Verrazano-Narrows, the world's longest suspension bridge. And directly across Upper New York Bay is the borough of Brooklyn, connected to Manhattan by the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge.

These wetlands feature a unique tidal habitat shared by both land and open ocean areas. They are home to rich vegetation, as well as several species of birds, including the Black Skimmer, which nests in its sandy shores.

A special 2.2-acre parcel at the east end of the peninsula has been set aside specifically the endangered Least Tern.
