Nearly two dozen academics, scientists, and PhD students today wrote an open letter to Gov. Chris Christie urging him to modify a bill that would give some authority over Liberty State Park to a commission that would be focused on the Meadowlands. The letter’s signers- who come from Rutgers University, Montclair State University and even one from Harvard University- said that the 1,200-acre park in Jersey City, half of which is marshland, has "become an example of the type of environmental stewardship that is possible in the urban context."… The letter was publicized by Frank Gallagher, the director of environmental planning and design at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.
