Talk:New York Harbor
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
I'm drastically rewriting this page, as it contains numerous factual errors and irrelevant material.
Moroever, I am consolidating the discussion of the waterways of New York around the existing page New York Bay, which is the more geographically correct term, and the pages Lower New York Bay and Upper New York Bay. --- Decumanus 05:00, 15 Jan 2004 (UTC)
Attempt at references. Various federal agencies such as USACE, NOAA survey office, and NPS all seem to recognize the Harbor as a working unit, so the re-writing is directed that way. The environmental issues and Dubai controversies could be fleshed out more, and various agencies operations need to be inserted, but that's a bit beyond me just now. Checks on syntax and published references much appreciated rmo13 17:09, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
This article is viewed often and is a complete disaster. It also overlaps Upper New York Bay very much, therefore I suggesr a merge. A serious re-work could include more of the history covered very briefly in the Port of New York and New Jersey article, but focus of the bay and the area around the mouths of the East and Hudson, the historical "ïnner" harbor.Djflem (talk) 22:57, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
NY Harbor's history
Page needs to cover the history aspect more, NY harbor played pivotal roles in the American Revolution and the War of 1812 with the British coming and going and various stages. Presently the page doesn't even mention these wars. Passer by — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:25, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
