The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway runs along the pier that was once MOTBY (Military Ocean Terminal at Bayonne) and you can walk all the way out to the end. It is about 1 mile. The city of Bayonne is currently seeking to redevelop the pier.
There is one large housing complex at the start and a short bit of esplanade on the south side.
And then the esplanade ends.
There are huge totally vacant warehouses. I saw three rabbits on my walk.
Everything is boarded up.
Just across the way is the Bayonne Golf Club, one of the country’s most expensive golf clubs. Initiation fees are rumored to be $150,000. Opened in 2006, according to the NYT, it was built over a waste disposal site.
Large areas of the peninsula are overgrown.
At the end is Bayonne Dry Dock. By the size of the ship, the dry dock looks pretty big-bigger than anything at Caddell’s as far as I could tell.
You can see across to the other pier that has a container port facility. A roro was in port the day I was there.
And to add to all the incongruity of this place at the very tip is the Tear Drop Memorial. Hidden away, its feminine reference a bit too much for most people.
