The Palisades, also called the New Jersey Palisades or the Hudson River Palisades, are a line of steep cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in Northeastern New Jersey and Southeastern New York in the United States. The cliffs stretch north from Jersey City about 20 miles (32 km) to near Nyack, New York, and visible at Haverstraw, New York. They rise nearly vertically from near the edge of the river, and are about 300 feet (90 m) high at Weehawken, increasing gradually to 540 feet (160 m) high near their northern terminus. North of Fort Lee, the Palisades are part of Palisades Interstate Park and are a National Natural Landmark.

dbo:abstract
  • The Palisades, auch: New Jersey Palisades, Hudson River Palisades, sind eine Reihe von hohen Klippen entlang des Westufers des unteren Hudson River in der Gateway Region von New Jersey und Downstate New York in den Vereinigten Staaten. Die Kliffs ziehen sich vom Nordrand von Jersey City etwa 32 km nach Norden bis in die Nähe von Nyack und sichtbar bis nach Haverstraw, New York. Sie erheben sich nahezu senkrecht aus dem Ufer des Flusses und erreichen Höhen von 90 m (300 ft) bei Weehawken und steigen von da allmählich an, bis sie an ihrem Nordende 165 m (540 ft) Höhe erreichen. Nördlich von Fort Lee stehen die Palisades als Teil des unter Naturschutz und sind ein National Natural Landmark. Die Palisades gehören zu den dramatischsten geologischen Formationen in der Umgebung von New York City. Sie bilden einen Canyon für den Hudson nördlich der George Washington Bridge, und bieten spektakuläre Ausblicke auf die Skyline von Manhattan. Sie gehören zum , einem Spaltenbecken auf dem Gebiet von New Jersey. (de)
  • The Palisades, aussi appelées les New Jersey Palisades ou Hudson Palisades (certaines parties sont aussi surnommées Bergen Hill), sont une ligne de falaises située le long de la rive ouest de l'Hudson, dans le nord-est du New Jersey et le sud de l'État de New York, aux États-Unis d'Amérique. Les falaises s'étendent de Jersey City à Nyack. Elles s'élèvent presque à la verticale depuis la berge du fleuve jusqu'à des altitudes variant entre 107 et 168 mètres, et forment ainsi le relief le plus important de la région de New York. (fr)
  • The Palisades, dette anche New Jersey Palisades o Hudson Palisades (alcune porzioni sono anche chiamate Bergen Hill), sono una serie di falesie situate sulla riva destra del fiume Hudson, nel nord-est del New Jersey e il sud dello stato di New York, negli Stati Uniti. Si estendono da Jersey City a Nyack, elevandosi verticalmente per un'altezza tra 107 e 168 metri. Sono anche il maggior rilievo della regione di New York. (it)

North of Fort Lee, the Palisades are part of Palisades Interstate Park and are a National Natural Landmark. The Palisades are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a canyon of the Hudson north of the George Washington Bridge, as well as providing a vista of the Manhattan skyline. They sit in the Newark Basin, a rift basin located mostly in New Jersey. Palisade is derived from the same root as the word pole, ultimately from the Latin word palus, meaning stake. A "palisade" is, in general, a defensive fence or wall made up of wooden stakes or tree trunks. The Lenape called the cliffs "rocks that look like rows of trees", a phrase that became "Weehawken", the name of a town in New Jersey that sits at the top of the cliffs across from Midtown Manhattan.
