Scenic Hudson played a leading role in the successful three-year campaign to prevent the unspoiled beauty of the Palisades from being destroyed by a planned office tower. As a result of their efforts (which drew support from more than 30 other environmental and cultural groups), LG Electronics has agreed to reduce by more than half the height of its new North American headquarters atop the Palisades in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Instead of rising high above the tree line, the structure now will be virtually invisible — preserving the majesty of this National Natural Landmark above the Hudson.
