Landmarks

There is So Much History in Edgewater

A lot of people don’t realize that Edgewater didn’t become this real estate booming epicenter overnight.  The town was originally an industrial powerhouse in the late 1800’s into the early 1900’s.  Major companies like Alcoa, Jack Frost Sugar, Hill Bros Coffee, Lever, Barrett Roofing Prod, Spencer Kellogg, Ford, Sea Train, Falk Oil, and others were major players.

You can see in the picture a road with about two pairs of train tracks on it, that is actually modern day River Rd. Transportation of factory goods was facilitated when the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway cut the Edgewater Tunnel through the Palisades in 1894 to connect the borough to its main line.  Edgewater was also well situated for shipping, with deep water piers on the Hudson River and access to abundant labor from Manhattan. Generally, industrial development occurred in the southern end of the borough, while the northern end remained residential.

Eventually the factories closed. The reasons were varied, but they included the globalization of industry, obsolete facilities and the replacement of railroad shipping by trucking, which could not run its large tractor trailer trucks on Edgewater’s narrow street.  The late 20th century history of Edgewater was one of change from an industrialized town to a residential one. With the closing of the factories, development initially came to Edgewater in the 1960s and grew exponentially in the early 1980s, as developers began projects to convert the industrial sites that had historically led to Edgewater not being considered as an option for development.  As condominiums were built along the Hudson where industry had formerly operated, the population of Edgewater grew rapidly.
