Connecting people with inspirational power of the Hudson River since 1963.
Rockland Desalination Plant (Haverstraw)
Our six-year campaign to halt construction of an environmentally harmful desalination plant on Haverstraw Bay — site of some of the river’s most important aquatic habitats — ended in victory when plans to build the facility were dropped.
Storm King Mountain (Cornwall)
Conserving the iconic northern gateway to the Hudson Highlands, Con Edison agreed not to build a destructive hydroelectric plant. Scenic Hudson was established to protect the mountain and led the successful 17-year campaign.
Pilgrim Pipelines (Hudson Valley)
We engaged citizens and communities to oppose this proposal to construct two crude oil pipelines through the valley. The outcry against the project led to its abandonment, halting potential environmental, public health and safety threats.
LG Headquarters (Englewood, NJ)
In a “win-win” for the environment and the economy, LG Electronics reached an agreement with us and partners to reduce the height of its proposed corporate tower atop the Palisades, preserving magnificent views and keeping jobs in the region.
Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant (Buchanan)
Ending the harm it causes aquatic wildlife and public safety, New York State and plant owner Entergy agreed to close this outdated facility by 2021 — ending our decades-long campaign to shut it down.
St. Lawrence Cement Plant (Hudson)
Preserving air quality and iconic views from Olana, NYS rejected plans to erect this 20-building manufacturing complex resulting from our grassroots campaign to stop its construction.
Riverfront Towers (Yonkers)
Securing public riverfront access and preserved downtown Palisades views resulted from a settlement we brokered to stop construction of a wall of 38-story towers along the city’s waterfront.
Proposed Hudson River Anchorages
Preserving water quality and habitats, the U.S. Coast Guard abandoned plans for 10 new “parking lots” for 43 vessels carrying hazardous substances. We mobilized thousands of citizens to fight the proposal.
Expanded Crude Oil Operations (Albany)
Decreasing the likelihood of hazardous spills and health threats in local neighborhoods, Global Partners decided not to build new crude oil facilities. We partnered in opposing the expanded operations.
Sloop Hill (New Windsor)
Preserving a prominently visible river promontory and prime bald eagle habitat, NYS acquired 100 acres slated for a 530-unit condominium. Scenic Hudson played a lead role in securing the land’s protection.
