“The Palisades” Lecture at Chester Library

June 20 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In 1524, explorer Giovanni da Verrazano described the cliffs along the west bank of the Hudson River as “a fence of stakes,” or “Palisades.” Join Kevin Woyce for a colorful tour of one of New Jersey’s most impressive landmarks, from its formation and discovery to the American Revolution and the creation of Palisades Interstate Park. 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. We’ll also visit Fort Lee, when it was the home of the silent movie industry, and Palisades Amusement Park. Register at www.chesterlib.org or call 879-7612.
