The Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, a bi-state agency of New York and New Jersey, was created by a compact between the two states authorized by the Congress in 1953. The purpose of the compact was to vest in the agency powers with which to address the rampant and pervasive corruption on the waterfront. Since that time, as described in detail by Judge Wigenton in her opinion issued on June 1, 2018 (granting the commission’s motion for a preliminary injunction and denying cross-motions of Gov. Murphy, Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Coughlin), the commission has pursued numerous investigations, many of which resulted in convictions of people for conducting illegal activities in the port, including labor racketeering, illegal gambling, loansharking and murder.
