Pick Jersey City

A coalition of senior retired naval reserve officers who served in all echelons of command in the ships and shore stations of the U.S. Navy strongly support the mooring of the battleship New Jersey in Jersey City.

What finer site could be found for this proud ship named after our state than in the vicinity of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, with the New Jersey moored parallel to the channel and pointed to the open sea?

While there are pros and cons of mooring the New Jersey in either Camden, Bayonne or Liberty State Park, the overriding consideration must be the selection of a site of national significance and prominence. The New Jersey, the most decorated ship in U.S. naval history, deserves no less.

The Liberty State Park site provides extremely high visibility, easy accessibility and an excellent safety/security infrastructure. These are essential factors because the ship must generate more than $3 million in revenues to cover annual operating expenses.
