This page describes the state of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway in 2004.  It was developed as an overview of the planning process at that time.  Current information about this and other components of New York City's bicycle network can be found at the Department of Transportation website.  See more information about the Department of City Planning's Bicycle and Greenway Planning program.

From Dyckman Street to West 181st Street, just north of the George Washington Bridge, greenway users should take the path that runs along the Henry Hudson Parkway. For the opening of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, DPR repaved the path to make it easier for bicycles and skaters to use (though to access it from Dyckman Street it is necessary to climb a set of stairs). This path features beautiful views of the Hudson River and Fort Tryon Park, and runs directly adjacent to a Grecian temple. This upland path lies between the Henry Hudson Parkway and a bluff to the Amtrak Empire Line and the waterfront. As such it has no waterfront or upland connections. At West 181st Street greenway users can connect to a previously existing path that runs along the waterfront to West 145th Street.
