Henry Hudson Drive, Palisades Interstate Park, New Jersey Almost immediately after the New Jersey Palisades were protected from devastating quarrying operations by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission in 1900, discussions were underway to develop a great scenic “driveway” along the Hudson River. The Henry Hudson Drive, a segment of a proposed great scenic drive from New York to Albany (that included Storm King Highway, 1914), opened to great acclaim in 1921. (Credit: Dan Marriott)
