The Germantown Waterfront Advisory Committee has sent its first comment letter to the New York State Department of State regarding Amtrak’s proposed gates and fences to restrict access to miles of Hudson River shore, a proposal which we in the committee, along with Scenic Hudson, Riverkeeper, and local sportsmen, first responders, historians, nature lovers and others, believe would have an adverse impact on Germantown and other river communities.

The letter, addressed to Matthew P. Margaglio, a coastal resource specialist in the New York State Department of State’s consistency review unit, reads, in part:

“The Town of Germantown Waterfront Advisory Committee (WAC) was appointed by the Germantown Town Board in 2016 to use grant money from the New York State Department of State (NYSDOS) to complete a Local Waterfront Revitalization Study (LWRS), which is, coincidentally, being finalized this month.

“We’ve spent a year and a half conducting public outreach and researching the unique qualities of our community. The committee finds that the Federal Consistency Assessment Form (FCAF) prepared by Amtrak and released for public comment on March 14, 2018 by the NYSDOS under public notice number F-2018-0060 is unacceptably vague, was created without local consultation, and is inconsistent with our LWRS in many ways.

“In fact, we’ve learned so much through our NYS funded study that we couldn’t possibly explain our concerns in just one letter. Over the course of the next month, we plan to issue a series of white papers that elaborate our concerns in more detail.”

“There are few enough things you can depend on in this world, and one of them is another installment of Mission: Impossible, now about to enter its twentieth year. Tom Cruise, at 53, still manages to infuse the action with his infectious enthusiasm, and likewise still does his own stunts, which are getting weirder and wilder in every iteration. Like the James Bond series, the Missions are distinguished by their colorful villains and ravishing femme fatales, and this one is no exception. And yes, there’s a plot-espionage–and a pretty good one too. Along with Cruise, also enjoy Alec Baldwin, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames.”
- Peter Biskind

Rated PG-13. 131 mins. Starring Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson


“There should be more movies like [Rogue Nation]: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks who can’t tell the difference between Quicksilver and The Flash.”
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

“At once questioning and reaffirming the pleasures of cinematic espionage, this is the rare sequel that leaves its franchise feeling not exhausted but surprisingly resurgent at 19 years and counting.”
- Justin Chang, Variety

“You’ll never see Cruise playing an effortless comic book immortal – his characters are at their best when their backs are to the wall.”
- Amy Nicholson, Village Voice

“The formula of ingredients is familiar and time-tested, to be sure, but some cocktails go down much better than others and McQuarrie and company have gotten theirs just right here.”
