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.

Currently, greenway users may not continue along the waterfront north of East 125th Street due to the reconstruction of three Harlem River Bridges. After Bobby Wagner Walk, greenway users should cross the East 120th Street pedestrian bridge over the FDR to proceed inland. They then continue west on East 119th (eastbound travelers take East 120th Street). Both East 119th and East 120th are marked with Class 2 bike lanes that connect to the north- and southbound bike route on St. Nicholas Avenue, which has striped bike lanes to West 169th Street. East 120th Street abuts a public sculpture court and Marcus Garvey Park. St. Nicholas Avenue abuts St. Nicholas Park, which has stunning rock faces.
