In 1524, explorer Giovanni da Verrazano described the cliffs along the
west bank of the Hudson River as "a fence of stakes," or "Palisades."
Join me for a colorful tour of one of New Jersey's most impressive
landmarks, from its formation and discovery to the American Revolution
and the creation of Palisades Interstate Park. Explore history along the
park's major trails, from abandoned riverfront beaches and ferry landings
to a vanished cliff top world of mansions and grand hotels. We'll also visit
Fort Lee, when it was the home of the silent movie industry, and Palisades
