    I had no idea how close we are to the River in the North Ward. Why should only industry have access? We need parks near the river, with play structures and more public access. It would be helpful to know about toxic dumping over there, as the smells around there suggest that things are going wrong. As I grew up in Seattle, where the port provides a unique and beautiful site for Pike Place market and amazing waterfront dining and views, I hope together we can impress upon decision makers the need for vision about how to use waterfront in Newark to benefit everyone, especially residents of the Northward.
