Electronics giant LG plans to build its new US headquarters near the Palisades in New Jersey, which opponents say will destroy the beautiful view. Local officials are now calling for a compromise between LG and its environmental opponents. Ned Sullivan, President of Scenic Hudson and a member of the steering committee Protect the Palisades, a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to preserving the Hudson River Palisades, discusses what this compromise might look like.

LG plans to build its tall new headquarters above the tree line in the Palisades, and environmentalists and others are pressuring the company to lower it. Kim Lueddeke, reporter for The Record, gives an update after attending a public hearing last night in Englewood Cliffs. Plus, she'll talk about a new state senate bill that would ban all tall buildings along the Palisades.
Joining her is Mayor Paul Tomasko. His town, Alpine, is Englewood Cliffs' northern neighbor. He explains why he is against LG's tall new headquarters, too.
