alpine_cliffs, PalisadesIn 1524, explorer Giovanni da Verrazano described the cliffs along the west bank of the Hudson River as “a fence of stakes” or “Palisades.” Kevin Woyce will lead the audience on a “tour” of the Palisades, one of New Jersey’s most impressive landmarks—from its formation and discovery to the American Revolution and the creation of Palisades Interstate Park. We will explore history along the park’s major trails, from abandoned riverfront beaches and ferry landings to a vanished cliff top world of mansions and grand hotels.
