The Palisades: A Virtual Lecture

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 author and lecturer Kevin Woyce for a colorful tour of the Hudson River Palisades, from its formation and discovery to the American Revolution and the creation of the 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, New Jersey, when it was the home of the silent movie industry, and Palisades Amusement Park.
