The proposed pipeline* is making its way through the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) review process. This proposed 30″-42″ high pressure gas pipeline is slated to run through Linden, Bayonne, Staten Island, and Jersey City, before crossing under the Hudson River at Hoboken and entering Manhattan at the West Village. For details about why this pipeline is a bad idea, see “more info” at right.
