Fort Lee, in eastern Bergen County, New Jersey, United States, is a borough situated atop the Hudson Palisades overlooking the Hudson River. The town is at the northern end of the densely populated Hudson Waterfront, the string of municipalities facing the skyline of Manhattan, to which it is connected via the George Washington Bridge (GWB). The bridge, built in 1931, at 604 ft (184 m) meters in height as measured from its base, is the tallest structure in Fort Lee. The cliffs of the Palisades rise to about 260 ft (79 m).[1] Since the 1960s, numerous residential high-rise buildings have been built along the Palisade Avenue-Boulevard East corridor. As of March 2014, apart from the bridge itself, there were eight structures over 300 ft (91 m) tall in Fort Lee.
