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 East 25th Street to East 30th Street the greenway runs along the service road for the Waterside Plaza apartment complex and the Water Club restaurant. Southbound cyclists are provided a designated and segregated contra-flow bike lane in the service road; northbound cyclists ride with traffic.

At East 30th Street the greenway continues on the service road and on the wide sidewalk past the Water Club parking lot. It then moves to a marginal street and passes the City’s busiest heliport, the 34th Street ferry terminal, and an NYU parking lot. At East 36th Street it enters Glick Park, located along the waterfront from East 36th Street to East 38th Street.

Riders exit Glick Park at East 37th Street. Greenway users should turn inland, cross under the FDR, and then use First Avenue to go north (southbound riders use Second Avenue and East 38th Street). These Class 3, on-street routes continue to East 54th Street, where users turn onto Sutton Place to connect to Bobby Wagner Walk and return to the waterfront.

First and Second Avenue are streets with heavy traffic volumes. They should not be used by inexperienced cyclists.
