Piermont Marsh 

Took a lovely walk today through The Piermont Marsh
The site occupies two miles of shoreline south of the mile-long Erie Pier, and includes the mouth of Sparkill Creek and extensive tidal shallows. The Sparkill Creek drains 11.1 square miles of watershed. Sparkill Gap, the valley of Sparkill Creek, just west of the north end of the Piermont Marsh, is the only sea level break in the Palisades Ridge.  The one mile long pier was built in 1841 as the eastern terminus of the Erie Railroad.
