The spectra pipeline is expected to pump 800 million cubic feet of gas a day, starting in Linden, NJ (Bayway Refinery). Eventually making its way to Manhattan.
Incredibly; spectra wants to run the Manhattan portion of the pipeline; from, Liberty State Park in Jersey City, past the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Castle Garden (War of 1812 Era Fort Clinton And America's first immigrant receiving center), The Holland Tunnel, The New Jersey Turnpike, etc and off Hoboken's pristine shoreline, into Manhattan's West Village. Spectra laying a pipeline to bring FRACKED gas into the West Village Really Scary! This is crazy!

Status of NJ/NYC-spectra natural gas pipeline? Being decided by Federal Appeals Court.
Thirteen people were arrested for blocking the West Side Highway adjacent to the site where Spectra Energy has completed a pipeline entering Manhattan from New Jersey.
On June 28 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted approval to spectra to proceed with construction of the pipeline and ok'd spectra's original proposal.
This gas pipeline is expected to go into service Nov, 2013, with gas flowing through Bayonne, Jersey City and offshore Hoboken.
spectra and con ed plan to bring fracked gas, laced with radon, into New York via a new explosive, high pressure pipeline. This is bad for the environment and bad for New Yorkers.
From Bayonne to Hoboken, spectra's controversial natural gas transportation pipeline is expected to start pumping gas November 1st by Joseph R. Vena/The Jersey Journal October 24, 2013
I wrote this diary because I love New York City, Jersey City and they really turned Hoboken into a beautiful city. I have many friends in Manhattan and Jersey City.
I don't know how spectra got a permit for this project to begin with; except for the fact that FERC, is funded entirely by fees generated from energy companies.
Considering the large number of people all over Jersey City, NYC and with the West Village's congestion, allowing spectra's gas pipeline in this densely populated area, is totally reckless and irresponsible!

Hoboken objects to spectra's proposed gas pipeline too. One can understand how they would not like it destroying their pristine NJ/NY Harbor! Hoboken, New Jersey
Occupy Spectra NYC Aug 11, 2012 Occupy and NYC residents out in force to oppose the construction of an explosive pipeline that proposes to deliver radon-infested fracked gas from the Marcellus.

January 8, 2014. More than 2,000 New Yorkers from every corner of the state descended on Albany today to rally against fracking outside of Gov. Cuomo's (D-NY) State of the State address.
The concerned residents pointed to a significant and rapidly growing body of science showing harms of fracking to public health and the environment, delivering a clear message that fracking is inherently dangerous and Gov. Cuomo must ban it statewide. Those at the rally—representing more than 100 organizations—also urged the Governor to be a leader in clean, renewable energy for New York and the nation.
This video is loud and long (14 minutes), but very good.
