For generations, the Greene Street Boat Club was the hub for Downtown Jersey City fishing enthusiasts. Though the club did not have title to the property, members maintained squatter rights to their docks.

Supposedly to make way for development, Mayor Gerald McCann (during his first term) evicted the Greene Street Boat Club.

Now part of Peninsula Park, this section of Waterfront remains unused.
