From West 59th Street to Battery Park Place, the greenway runs between Route 9A and the waterfront in what is to become Hudson River Park. The greenway is a 36-foot separated-use path with a planted raised buffer between greenway users and vehicles. This stretch of waterfront has many amenities: piers, a trapeze school, batting cages, benches, and upland access at almost all street intersections. The Route 9A greenway is an example of the potential for non-motorized transportation and the wonderful facilities that can result from proper funding and collaboration.
Currently there is minor construction on this route because of the creation of Hudson River Park and the renovation of Route 9A. The construction does not affect greenway users’ ability to enjoy the route.
