The offices of borough president were created in 1898 with the formation of the City of Greater New York. Fernando Ferrer Fernando James "Freddy" Ferrer (born April 30, 1950 in the Bronx, New York) was the Borough President of The Bronx from 1987 to 2001, and was a candidate for Mayor of New York in 2001 and the Democratic Party nominee for Mayor in 2005. , a leading advocate for the revitalization of American cities, described the waterfront as New York New York, state, United States

"Despite the continuing decline of manufacturing and the fact that goods movement has shifted largely from ship and rail to truck, the city's zoning map continues to reflect past history, with most manufacturing zones, particularly those outside of Manhattan, still located along the waterfront," noted Ferrer.
In New Jersey, waterfront development is taking several forms. Joseph Scimone of Crown Properties led the acquisition of 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, NJ. The waterfront property, built in 1987 and vacant until 1997, has attracted its first major tenant, marking the turnaround of this prime commercial office building. With all the amenities of the entire Lincoln Harbor area and large well laid-out floorplates, it provides an excellent choice to cost conscious tenants that want an "A" location profile.
The combination of a strong rebound for office space along the New Jersey waterfront and Crown's aggressive approach has turned the 311,950 square-foot building around completely. Both the interior and exterior of the property were redesigned.
"Very competitive rents both to downtown New York City and even to other waterfront properties in New Jersey have made 300 Boulevard East an excellent low cost provider of prime space," said Scimone.
