Biking Along the Hudson River from Newport to Liberty State Park

Originally appeared in the July / August 2004 issue of Newport News

Learn All About Newport

New pedestrian amenities designed to blend with the pleasing palette of red brick and concrete accents throughout Newport were recently introduced. One was the recently completed newest section of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. Working with the City, the HRWW Conservancy and the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association, Newport combined its segment of Walkway at Sixth Street and Washington Boulevard with Avalon Cove’s to create a wider and more pleasing pedestrian access to the water. This new section of Walkway meets the new NOC VII plaza, which features a tree-shaded arcade, a 19’-diameter ship’s propeller, and new trees and flowerbeds.

Taken together, the new and rebuilt areas allow for seamless walks along the water from the heart of Newport to Exchange Place in an environment of attractive landscaping and dramatic views.

The other amenity creating a prominent Newport change is the crossing at Washington Boulevard and Pavonia Avenue, and the enhancements to the pedestrian island in the median of Washington Boulevard. This busy intersection was handicapped by constricted layouts and years of construction activity. New improvements feature better visibility, straight pathways, new landscaping and planters, and attractive brick and concrete surfaces for pedestrians and vehicles rather than the unsightly and dangerous battered asphalt that had been there. Michael Sabet, who supervised the construction, thanked the City Department of Engineering for coordinating repaving of portions of Washington Boulevard in conjunction with Newport’s efforts.

Newport Marina’s approach road now also has been completely rebuilt in concrete and brick, with an impressive obelisk entrance marker on Washington Boulevard and a circle of brick pavers in a formerly asphalt area at the Waterfront Walkway. The opportunity to rebuild the access road arose when the former driveway was removed for the construction of Newport Office Center VII. The entire segment of Marina Park walkway also has been rebuilt with pavers on a new concrete foundation. Green space was added by recapturing part of the former Marina driveway.

“Taken together these improvements extend the feel of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway to Washington Boulevard,” says David Thom, a Newport project manger. “The use of pavers here, and at the Marina, also alerts drivers to the presence of pedestrians and gently eases traffic through the crossings.”
