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 West 125th to West 100th Street is Cherry Walk, a waterfront path that takes users along one of the most natural sections of coastline in Manhattan. Completed with CMAQ funds in 2001, Cherry Walk is a beautiful, separated-use, tree-lined section of greenway between the Henry Hudson Parkway on the east and the Hudson River on the west. This is one of the only places in the city where there is no barrier between the path and the river; it is possible to take a careful walk across the rocks and touch the water.

From West 100th Street to West 91st Street the greenway continues along the waterfront on the western side of the Henry Hudson Parkway. From West 91st Street to West 83rd Street there is a 0.41 mile inland detour through Riverside Park because there is little room between the highway and the water. Pedestrians are allowed in this area, but there is not enough space for cyclists. At West 83rd Street the greenway returns to the waterfront.
