"Saving the Great Swamp" Screening at Livingston Library

The Livingston Public Library and the Livingston Historical Society are co-sponsoring a program on Sunday, September 22nd at 2pm that will feature a screening of the film Saving The Great Swamp: Battle to Defeat the Jetport at the Library. Filmmaker Scott Morris will be on hand to do an introduction of the film. 

Saving The Great Swamp: Battle to Defeat the Jetport is a one-hour documentary about the events, people and politics behind the struggle to preserve a rural area of New Jersey between 1959 and 1968. The fight began when the powerful Port of New York Authority announced plans to construct a huge 10,000 acre "jetport" 26 miles west of New York City in a little-known place called the Great Swamp. In the name of progress, entire towns would be obliterated, the aquifer and wildlife destroyed, and a way-of-life threatened for thousands of people. The film is narrated by Blythe Danner

The program is free and open to all. For more information visit www.livingstonlibrary.org or call (973) 992-4600.
