Sentinel - NJ Meadowlands

Sandwiched in between New York City and the urbanized communities of northern New Jersey, restored portions of the Hackensack Meadowland at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst provide welcome sanctuary for a wide array of wildlife. Part of the park sit atop an old landfill and a "garbage island" where trash was once dumped illegally. Here, Manhattan's Empire State Building stands watch over a stand of phragmites. The park stands next to a major power line corridor, a New Jersey Transit line, and several other industrial/warehouse complexes. The Meadowlands has been modified over and over by human activity over hundreds of year.
